Wrestling is returning for the Tokyo Olympics. The Olympic wrestling competition is about to begin on Saturday, July 31, and run through Saturday, August 7. American wrestling star Jordan Burroughs won’t compete in Tokyo after losing to Kyle Dake at the U.S. Olympic Wrestling Trials. Dake, 30, is going to be making his Olympic debut with hopes of taking home a trophy within the 74 kg weight class. Meanwhile, Kyle Snyder, who won wrestling gold in Rio, is going to be back for us. All eyes are going to be on Snyder as a possible matchup against ROC’s Abdulrashid Sadulaev looms, which might be a clash of two of the highest wrestlers within the world.
Other key wrestlers to stay tabs on during the Olympics include Rio gold medalist Helen Maroulis, five-time world champion Adeline Gray, Olympic newcomer Gable Steveson and therefore the magnetic Tamyra Mensah-Stock.
