The USA won a medal in every style in the highest weight class

Recommended Posts

It's all the junk food Americans eat.  We are heavier.  Jokes aside, I suspect this is something relatively new in a historical sense.  It's not a trend yet, though there was a period when the US won three Greco golds in a row (early 2000s).    In freestyle, the upper weights are definitely stronger for us:  74KG to 125KG  (3 golds,  1 silver, 2 bronze).

The Japanese do well at the lighter weights.  Smaller frames and different diets.
