“Save Olympic Wrestling” event in Olympia, Greece

The “Save Olympic Wrestling” event was held in Olympia, Greece. 100 wrestlers from 12 countries participated in a tournament and various media events to promote saving the sport. When the IOC dropped wrestling from the list of Olympic core sports, wrestlers and supporters all over the world fought back. This was documentation of my experiences from the trip. The highlight of my trip was touring the Ancient Olympic grounds and having a guide teach us about the historic roots of the Games and of our sport. I want to thank FILA, the Greek federation, and especially USAwrestling for making this trip possible for me.
