Wrestling’s regional events are contested in freestyle and Greco-Roman,
the only two styles of wrestling at the Olympic level. Freestyle
wrestling is exciting, creative, and dynamic because points can be
scored from almost anywhere. The most recent Olympic wrestling gold
medals were won by freestyle wrestler Jordan Burroughs and Jake Varner
in 2012. Other notable freestyle wrestlers include 2008 Gold Medalist
Henry Cejudo, Cael Sanderson (Olympic gold medalist and four-time
undefeated NCAA champion), Jake Herbert (World silver medalist and
two-time NCAA Champion), and Tervel Dlagnev (World bronze medalist and
two-time Division II NCAA Champion). Greco-Roman wrestling is known for
powerful lifts and big throws, as all attacks must be made above the
waist. Current National Greco-Roman Head Coach Steve Fraser was a gold
medalist in 1984, and Rulon Gardner won gold in 2000.
