    TNTwrestle reacted to GoNotQuietly in Qualifying Tournaments FAQ: Please read before posting about qualiers   
    There are about a billion threads/posts asking basically the same questions so let's clear a few things up.  Alternatively, everything you want to know about the Olympic procedures is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wrestling_at_the_2016_Summer_Olympics_%E2%80%93_Qualification
     
    Q: Can we send more than one wrestler at each weight?
    A: No, each country can send only one representative to try to qualify their nation
     
    Q: Can we send a different representative than the OTT Champion
    A: No, USAW guidelines dictate that the OTT Champion will be the representative, barring injury
     
    Q: If the OTT Champ is injured, and the alternative wrestler qualifies the weight, who goes?
    A: The OTT Champ will be the Olympic representative unless they are unable to compete at the games due to injury
     
    Q: When/Where are the qualifying tournaments?
    A: 1st World Qualification Tournament is April 22-24 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
         2nd World Qualification Tournament is May 6-8 in Istanbul Turkey
     
     
    Q: Which Weights does the USA still have to qualify?
    A: Men's Freestyle: 65kgs, 86kgs
    Women's Freestyle: 48kgs, 53kgs, 58kgs, 69kgs
    Men's Greco:  59kgs, 66kgs, 98kgs
     
    Q: What do our wrestlers have to place in order to qualify the weight?
    A:  Men's Freestyle and Greco: Mongolia: Top 3 Istanbul: Top 2
    Women's Freestyle: Mongolia: Top 2 Istanbul: Top 2
     
    Q: Who will they have to wrestle at these tournaments?
    A: Countries who have already qualified can NOT send a representative to these tournaments.  The European regional tournament is this weekend, so we will know more after that, but you can see the list of current qualifiers here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wrestling_at_the_2016_Summer_Olympics_%E2%80%93_Qualification#Men.27s_freestyle_events
     
    Q: Can we get all of these weights qualified?
    A: It is going to be extremely tough with the reduction in weight classes squeezing the world's best into very limited spots, but our athletes are tough as nails and we put together a phenomenal team at the Trials this weekend.  Best of luck, and safe travels Team USA!
     
    Please post any other questions here, and someone much more knowledgeable than me will most likely answer them.
     
    Cheers,

    With all that HS talent in Pennsylvania, just think if PSU had a coach who wanted to do more than just "have fun".

    TNT,
     
    Ok, that makes more sense.  Thanks.  I took those as your predictions as I didn't read farmer's post after he edited to add his predictions.
     
    Since I am on a likes giving binge, I made you my 3rd in one topic!  Thanks for the kind words.

    MSU, I was responding to farmer's fantasy about the PSU all-stars whipping up on the Iowa all-stars, as copied and pasted above my remarks. Most of the time I enjoy your input MSU, both here and on HR. I enjoy your humor as well, even though it seems most people (both places) don't always get it.

    They don't need as many "lung timeouts" anymore, their coaches can buy them plenty of times with video reviews.

    My bride and I are bringing my HS coach to Nationals this year... he is 87 and this will no doubt be his last chance for such a trip.
     
    last year after getting home I called him and talked about the tourney. He told me to quit calling him telling him how much fun it was. I thought about it for a couple weeks then decided to call him and said...... hey coach why don't you come along next year, on me. It's going to be really enjoyable having him along. I owe him much.
     
    Going to be rooting for VT

    Nick Moore has been injured all season. No one wants to notice, they just want to rag on him. If he gets in, he'll score at Nat'ls, injured or not.

    Maybe it is the cutting which I am sure most 125 have to do a lot of. Total BroScience here but maybe having a little bodyfat on you can protect your joints.  
     
    Maybe it those arm levers on the airdyne that 125lbers spend half the season on.
