Brackets posted for Qualification Tournaments at U.S. Nationals in Las Vegas



The brackets for the competitors in the Qualification Tournaments in men's freestyle and men's Greco-Roman for the 2006 U.S. Nationals have been posted.

There will be competition in six weight classes in men's freestyle wrestling and two weight classes in men's Greco-Roman wrestling..

There will be qualification tournaments in men's freestyle wrestling at 55 kg/121 lbs., 60 kg/132 lbs., 66 kg/145.5 lbs., 74 kg/163 lbs.., 84 kg/185 lbs. and 96 kg/211.5 lbs.

There will be qualification tournaments in men's Greco-Roman wrestling at 66 kg/145.5 lbs. and 74 kg/163 lbs.

Because there were fewer than 20 wrestlers in all of the other weight classes, there will be no Qualification Tournaments in one weight class in men's freestyle and in five weight classes in men's Greco-Roman.

The Qualification Tournament is part of the new format for the U.S. National Championships.

In the men's divisions at the U.S. Nationals, there will be eight wrestlers in each weight class who do not have to wrestle in that Qualification Tournament. These will include the current members of the U.S. national team (the top three as set at the 2005 World Team Trials), along with those who qualify through the Dave Schultz Memorial, and athletes who are chosen by a Separation Committee to advance directly to the U.S. Nationals.

The Qualification Tournament in men's freestyle and men's Greco-Roman will be held on Friday, April 14. Wrestlers will compete in each weight class until eight wrestlers are left (four in the championship bracket and four in the consolation bracket).

Those eight wrestlers in each weight class will then advance to compete on the following day, joining the eight athletes who were separated out. The U.S. Nationals will feature 16 athletes in each weight class, in a double-elimination bracket, with consolation wrestlebacks to seventh place.
