Greco-Roman Training Camp Underway at the U.S. Olympic Training Center



The 2001 Greco-Roman Training Camp has begun at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. The camp will run from Jan. 8 to Jan. 20. The camp will consist of the 2000 Olympic team, 2000-01 Team USA members, along with the Greco-Roman Olympic training center resident athletes.
