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.
‘19 World Teamer Ray Bunker (Marines, world #5) and teammate Jamel Johnson both added 16 points by virtue of placing fifth overseas. For Bunker, that was Rome; meanwhile, Johnson had missed out on bronze at Deglane in January, where he went 2-2.
There is movement to note, however. ‘20 National Champion Benji Peak (Sunkist/NTS) climbs one spot to #10, as Austin Morrow (NYAC/NTS) is dropped out of the 67 rankings altogether. Morrow has reportedly decided to try 77 at Last Chance, and is now ranked #15 in that weight category. With everyone beneath Peak moving up, it provided an opportunity to insert Morgan Flaharty (NYAC) at #15.
The Junior bronze medal-winning duo of Alston Nutter (Sunkist/NTS) and Peyton Omania (MSU/CYC) both hold 20 points but are still unranked simply due to those points having not been earned at Senior.
*Olympic Trials qualified.
