The one weight where we are like Russia

Recommended Posts

Hey, it may not be much, but we have one weight where we are often 2 or even 3 deep in world medal level wrestlers.  163/74KG  the USA has had quite a run. In the 76 Trials, Stan Dzeidzic, Wade Schalles and Lee Kemp battled it out.  A few years later, Monday/Schultz, now JB, Kyle and David.  I'd love to see an open World Championship.  As many as you want to enter.  What a deal that would be.
