The future of Greco-Roman in the U.S. looks bright. At the age-group level, Team USA saw a marked improvement in the 2020 quad, bringing home nine individual medals in three years, up from four medals in four years during the 2016 quad. Included in those nine medals are Cohlton Schultz’s 2017 Cadet World title, the first for the U.S. since the Cadet division was brought back in 2011, and Kamal Bey’s 2017 Junior World title, the first for the U.S. since 1999.
2019 was a banner year at the Junior level, bringing home three medals (two bronze and one silver) from Tallinn, Estonia, the most since 1984. Additionally, the U.S. netted seven medals at the inaugural U15 Combat Games in Budapest, Hungary, including five world titles.
On the Senior level, the U.S. has qualified four out of the six weight classes for the Tokyo Olympic Games, already matching the total number qualified for the 2016 Rio Olympics with the opportunity to qualify the remaining weight classes at the Last Chance Qualifier in Sofia, Bulgaria, this April.
