So, Who's Qualified For An Olympic Redshirt So Far?

null

Just two months out from the 2019 NCAA championships, we now have an added layer of intrigue as the Olympic Redshirt criteria have been released.

Let's first take a look at the criteria:

  1. Past national team members (top three from the World or Olympic Team Trials)
  2. Top eight at the 2019 Senior U.S. Open
  3. Top three at the 2019 NCAA Wrestling Championship; or NCAA champion from a previous year AND top two from the 2019 U23 World Team Trials (must accomplish both).
  4. Previous Cadet, Junior, U23 world medalist

Obviously, no one has yet met criterion No. 2 and No. 3 as NCAAs and the U.S. Open haven't occurred for this year. But, who's already met items No. 1 and No. 4, meaning they can apply for an Olympic redshirt to miss the 2019-20 NCAA season?

Many thanks to Yankeefan33 on the Hawkeye Report for doing the leg work after a previous episode of FRL.
