Team USA still searching for 1st medal as Freestyle wrestling gets underway

Olympic Greco-Roman wrestling has not been kind to the US this millennium. Just ask Head Coach Matt Lindland. Lindland was one of only a very small handfull of men to medal for Team USA in this discipline of wrestling.

Team USA is still searching for its first medal entering day 1 of Freestyle competition. Several US wrestlers have won their opening bouts, but follow up wins have been hard to come by, and the US has had virtually no luck being pulled back into the repechage rounds.

Expectations are still high for Team USA freestyle, with returning Olympic champion Jordan Burroughs and world champion Kyle Snyder leading the charge.. Two American women, Adeline Gray and Helen Maroulis are also currently ranked #1 in the latest UWW rankings.
