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...–_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...reestyle_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,

Carlo

Great thread, thanks for sharing the info. 

 

I know it would never happen for a multitude of reasons, but as a purely hypothetically scenario - if Cox can't get a passport in time can we legally send Burroughs to qualify 86?

No problem, the great wiki made it pretty easy.

 

As far as sending Burroughs, I'm not positive, but I think that is covered by this:

 

"Wrestlers who qualified quota places for their NOC at the 2015 World Championship and the 2016 Continental Qualification tournaments will not have the right to take part in this 3rd qualification phase."

 

That seems to be specific to the wrestler and not the weight class.

Ah yes, good catch.  Sounds like a quick passport isn't an issue from the other thread anyway, Cox will get a quick lesson in world travel!

Not that it's an issue, but if Holm had won the trials are there certain places he might not be able to go?  And for the record his case sounded like complete BS. 


Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. Contrary to what you've just seen, war is neither glamorous nor fun. There are no winners, only losers. There are no good wars, with the following exceptions: The American Revolution, World War II, and the Star Wars Trilogy. If you'd like to learn more about war, there's lots of books in your local library, many of them with cool, gory pictures.

Yes, providing he wore a varmint on his head.
