Olympic Wrestling Overview

Wrestling at the Olympics is the real deal. No theatrics except for the drama that unfolds on the mat. There are two wrestling styles at the Olympics: freestyle and Greco-Roman. The difference is that, in Greco-Roman, wrestlers are only permitted to perform holds and attacks above the waist. In both styles, wrestlers are awarded points for various moves and takedowns and can win by points or by pinning their opponent.
