A 90-minute broadcast of the Dave Schultz Memorial International Wrestling Championships will be broadcast on a taped-delayed basis on the Altitude Sports & Entertainment network.

Selected matches from the gold-medal finals of the tournament will be featured on the show. The competition was originally held at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. on Feb. 9-10.

The competition features all three Olympic styles of wrestling (men's freestyle, men's Greco-Roman, women's freestyle). A total of 24 nation's participated in the competition this year, the largest and most competitive field in the nine-year history of the tournament. More than a dozen individual World or Olympic champions entered the competition, with many other international medalists in each of the styles.

The event was first held in February 1999 when USA Wrestling, working with Nancy Schultz and the Dave Schultz Wrestling Foundation, created an international wrestling tournament in honor of the late Olympic and World Champion Dave Schultz.
