He's back. Spencer Lee will be making his long-awaited return to freestyle this weekend.

Watch the Olympic Trials Qualifier LIVE on Flo

December 20-22 | 11:00 AM Eastern

Lee has registered for the Senior Nationals - US Olympic Trials Qualifier in Fort Worth at 57kg. Wrestling will begin on Saturday, December at 11 AM eastern, with the finals coming on Sunday.

The two-time national champ and three-time age-level world champ has not wrestled a freestyle match since September of 2016, when he won his second Junior world title. It will be the Iowa star's senior-level debut, and he will be competing for Titan Mercury along with his other Hawkeye Wrestling Club teammates.

Lee is considered a very real threat to win the Olympic Team Trials in April. He was incredibly dominant coming up through Cadets and Juniors, making two Cadet teams and winning a world title in 2014. He followed that up with two Junior gold medals, all coming at 50kg.

All of Spencer's freestyle matches in eighth grade and high school came at 50kg, with the exception of the six matches he wrestled at 54kg in Akron in 2015 when he tried to make his third straight Cadet team. However, he has spent the last two years dominating his way to NCAA titles at 125 pounds, which is just a hair under the weight class he'll be entered in this weekend.

In order to qualify for the OTT at State College, he'll have to place in the top five. At this point, the best guys registered at 57kg include Nahshon Garrett, Vito Arujau, Nathan Tomasello and Zane Richards. Also expected to compete this weekend are Nick Suriano, Darian Cruz, and Jack Mueller, as they have not yet qualified for the Trials.

As soon as the brackets come available, set your FloArena alerts for Spencer and watch as one of the greatest youth freestylers we've ever seen begins his run at an Olympic gold medal next August in Tokyo.
