Greatest Need/General FundDONATE, opens in a new tab
By giving to USA Wrestling's Greatest Need/General Fund, you are supporting our mission - Guided by the Olympic Spirit, we provide quality opportunities for its members to achieve their full human and athletic potential.
This general operation support is the working capital we need to sustain our day to day operations and keep and/or build our infrastructure strong, as well as support specific projects or programs. These unrestricted funds and this fundraising support allow USA Wrestling to apply dollars where the need is the greatest. Unrestricted funds are crucial to the success of USA Wrestling and allow us to provide resources to projects and services that will have the greatest impact.
Thank you for your generosity and support!
Greco-RomanDONATE, opens in a new tab
At the 2023 World Championships in Belgrade, Serbia, our Greco-Roman wrestlers gave it their all, with five wrestlers place in the top 10. The team will continue to work hard and set their sites on preparing for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, France.
Our developmental age athletes have had success on the international level as well. Our U20 team finished 11th as a team and had four wrestlers finish in the top 10.
These performances show that the United States has some great athletes that will continue to improve. One of the biggest needs for our teams is more international training and competition opportunities which can be the catalyst that helps our athletes to have breakthrough performances and bring back more medals home to the United States.
Through your generous contributions and donations to our Greco-Roman program, our athletes will get more of the experiences and opportunities that will help to fuel future success on the world and Olympic stage.

Team USA’s women’s freestyle team closed out the 2023 World Championships with one World champion, seven medals, and a second-place team finish.
Amit Elor captured gold at 72 kg, winning her second senior gold in back-to-back years. Jacarra Winchester (55 kg) and Macey Kilty (65 kg) earned silver, while Sarah Hildebrandt (50 kg), Helen Maroulis (57 kg), Jennifer Page (59 kg) and Adeline Gray (76 kg) brought home bronze.
With this strong showing at the World Championships, Team USA is now qualified for the 2024 Olympic games in three weight classes in women’s freestyle (50 kg, 57 kg, 76 kg), with opportunities to qualify the remaining weights at the Pan American Olympic Qualifier in Mexico and the World Olympic Qualifier in Turkey this spring.

The U.S. Men’s Freestyle World Team won its second World Team Championship in back-to-back years in Belgrade, Serbia. This marks the fifth team title in men’s freestyle history, as well as the first time the team has won back-to-back World Team Titles.
The USA men’s freestylers finished with seven medals, and qualified four weights for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games. David Taylor (86 kg) added his fourth gold medal, while Vito Arujau (61 kg) and Zain Retherford (70 kg) claimed their first World gold medals.

Donate to the men’s freestyle program to help support our athletes as they strive to dominate on the world stage in Paris.
Living the Dream Medal FundMORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Living The Dream Medal Fund was created for the purpose of allowing the entire wrestling community to participate in celebrating and honoring the hard work of our champions. While we understand that no wrestling champion wrestles "for the money”, this Fund will send a strong message to our elite athletes that their glory is our collective glory and their hard work and dedication is appreciated.
U.S. World and Olympic team members are our ambassadors to the global wrestling community. The long journey from youth wrestler to an Olympic medalist requires determination, sweat, pain, time on the road in the gym and on the mats and struggling to be the best they can be. The few that prevail and win deserve our support.
The Living The Dream Medal Fund awards stipends for gold medal, silver medal, and bronze medal finishes at the World Championships and Olympic Games.
Greg Strobel Leadership AcademyLEARN MORE
Olympic dreams are realized over a lifetime of managing and developing values of Discipline, Accountability, Family, and A Lifetime of Good Habits.
After Greg’s passing, his family reached out to USA Wrestling Executive Director, Rich Bender. The goal was simple, keep Greg Strobel’s values alive in the hearts and minds of the USA Wrestling Community.
Since that day, the Greg Strobel Leadership Academy (GSLA) has worked with National Team Coaches and Athletes to determine “gaps” in athlete support with a focus on areas not traditionally covered by coaches and training staff.
Without taking time away from our national team coaches and key training schedules, GSLA makes additional resources and training opportunities available so that athletes can fill in performance gaps by reducing the “noise” that can cause stress and distractions.
Wrestling For PeaceMORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM
USA Wrestling for Peace works alongside United World Wrestling to identify global communities in need of wrestling programs to enhance established programs or create programs to benefit at risk youth worldwide. Many of our recent visits/programs have included Puerto Rico, Livingston, Guatemala, and Aman Jordan. Ambassador Dan Russell has worked closely with the wrestling program in Jordan and has now established a women’s wrestling program in the area. This is quite a feat in the region and a win for women’s wrestling! Our staff also conducts clinics and coaching during our visits.
