Updated List Of Olympic Redshirt Qualifiers

null

Now that our world teams are (nearly) complete, we have an updated list of wrestlers with NCAA eligibility remaining who have qualified to take an Olympic Redshirt this upcoming season.

A reminder that, like real redshirts, the Olympic version is ongoing. You don't need to formally declare your intentions to do so, and if you do plan on taking one you can still end it and begin competing for your team at any time. But if you do take one, you cannot compete collegiately in the 2019-20 season.

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

Of the seven wrestlers who qualified under criteria 1 this spring, six of them had already met the criteria of being a previous age level world medalist, so only Brady Koontz was added. Another 11 were added by placing at the Open.

Again, many thanks to Yankeefan33 on the Hawkeye Report for inspiring us to update this list a second time.

7 'Whoa' Moments From The MOCCO FloFilm

Before the debut of his FloFilm, we all knew about Steve Mocco's illustrious career on the mat, but we didn't know a lot about him personally, his upbringing, and other ins and outs of his life like we do many other wrestlers today. He was mysterious, intimidating, but fascinating. That all changed when we dropped MOCCO dropped in the fall of 2016.
