The Olympic Trials is the pinnacle of US wrestling. We were deprived of the quadrennial tournament in 2020, but on April 9-11, 2021, they return. Not just anyone will be able to compete, a wrestler must qualify by the procedures set forth by USA Wrestling, which can be found HERE.
Below is a list of athletes who have qualified for the Olympic Trials and several big names that have yet to qualify. It should be noted that once an athlete is qualified, they can compete at any weight they choose. The list below is what weight athletes are expected to compete at.
Reminder, there are only two remaining qualifying events: the NCAA Championships and the Final U.S. Olympic Trials Qualifier. The 2021 NCAA champion will qualify at whatever weight he chooses and the top two placers from the last chance tournament will qualify.
Jordan Burroughs (automatic bid to finals)
Kyle Dake (automatic bid to semifinals)
Kyle Snyder (Automatic bid to finals)
J’den Cox (automatic bid to the semifinals)
