The 2022 World Team wrestle-off at 62 kg in women’s freestyle between Kayla Miracle and Jennifer Rogers will take place on Aug. 13 at 2 p.m. ET at J.P. McCaskey High School in Lancaster, Pa.
Miracle, the returning World silver medalist at the weight and 2020 Olympian, was granted a delayed wrestle-off after sustaining an injury before June’s Final X New York, the last step of the World Team selection process, where she was set to face World Team Trials champion Rogers.
In addition to her Senior World silver, Miracle is also a 2019 U23 World runner-up and 2016 Junior World bronze medalist. She is competing for a spot on her third Senior World Team. Rogers is a 2013 Junior World bronze medalist and two-time Senior Pan American champion, who seeks a bid to her first Senior Worlds.
The wrestle-off will feature a best-of-three series between Miracle and Rogers, with the first match at 2 p.m. ET. Match two will take place following 30 minutes of rest time as will match three, if needed.
The winner of the series will represent the United States at the 2022 Senior World Championships in Belgrade, Serbia, Sept. 10-18. For information on World Championships hospitality, contact Morgan Rabine (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The wrestle-off, which is hosted by Beat the Streets Lancaster and Pennsylvania USA Wrestling, will be open to the public. Ticket information will be announced once it is released. Fans not able to attend can watch live on FloWrestling.org.
