by Gary Abbott, USA Wrestling
One of the great traditions in U.S. international wrestling has returned, with the hosting of the Bill Farrell Memorial International at the New York Athletic Club in New York City, Nov. 18-19.
This Senior-level event, which has roots going back for decades, is back to its traditional home in the historic New York Athletic Club. The event was postponed due to the pandemic. The most recent Bill Farrell Memorial was held in Cedar Falls, Iowa, Feb. 1-2, 2022, without the inclusion of international competitors.
This year, athletes from foreign countries have been invited again, and there will be a healthy mix of international competitors and U.S. athletes in the three Olympic disciplines: men’s freestyle, women’s freestyle and Greco-Roman.
As of Tuesday, there are 18 nations which have registered athletes for this outstanding event: Albania, Armenia, Canada, Ecuador, Egypt, France, Georgia, India, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Puerto Rico, Tajikistan, Ukraine and the United States.
A deadline for U.S. athletes to register without penalty is today.
