2020-21 Domestic Rankings - Greco-Roman
With both the Last Chance Qualifier and US Olympic Trials right around the corner, Five Point Move’s United States Greco-Roman rankings have been updated following the three events that transpired this winter: Grand Prix Zagreb Open (CRO), Olympic Preparation Tournament (HUN), and the Matteo Pellicone “Ranking Series” event (ITA), which unfolded last week and aired live right here on FLO.
Points are responsible for the majority of movement witnessed in our pre-Olympic Team Trials rankings, as several US athletes have recently come away with tournament placings necessitating increased totals. But -- a few wrestlers now appear in different weight categories from which they were listed prior. One weight class in particular receives an infusion of two wrestlers capable of altering the narrative al by themselves.
For a full list of point values as well as a more in-depth explanation of how our ranking system works, please view this article.
Note: athletes who are injured, suspended, or have been inactive are still rank-eligible, though ranking decisions are assessed on a case-by-case basis pertaining to both the individual and their respective weight category.
The top-10 at 60 kilograms remains unchanged from the fall with the exception of point values. Two-time US World Team member/Trials finalist Ildar Hafizov (Army/WCAP, world #5) picked up 16 points in Rome last week with his fifth-place showing, as did Sammy Jones (NYAC/UVRTC), who is also now ranked #5 by UWW -- but at 63 kg.
Despite not earning a victory on his recent trip overseas, Dylan Gregerson (UVRTC) makes his top-15 debut. Gregerson competed in three bouts between Hungary and Rome, and all three were hard-fought defeats at the hands of experienced, medal-capable opposition. That small but relevant sample size, along with the fact that Gregerson was in the National Team match against Jones in ‘19, were considered enough to elevate him heading into the Last Chance Qualifier.
