"For the fifth Fargo in a row (2020's event was canceled due to covid), USA Wrestling saw a rise in the event's high water mark, as 2023 saw 7,131 competitors enter the brackets, good for a healthy 7.2% increase over 2022.

In ten years, the growth in all three styles has grown at an astounding pace:

  • Boys freestyle is up 54%
  • Greco-Roman is up 46%
  • Girls freestyle is up 412%!!!

Boys Freestyle Brackets Are Close To Maxed Out​

The boys freestyle competitions already stretch over three days, a necessary adjustment to accommodate brackets that often feature a round of 256, meaning someone who has a pigtail and wins the bracket would go 8-0. "

Nebraska Recruits;​

Omar Ayoub, 138, Ohio (2024), 5th in freestyle

Tanner Frothinger, 138, Idaho (2023): 3-2 in freestyle, 5th in Greco

Marco Christiansen, 182, Minnesota (2024): 6th place freestyle & 8th place Greco.
 



Jordan Buroughs will be returning to action & wrestling in Kazakhstan on November 3rd at 74kg at the 'Kunayev D.A.' Tournament. This will be JB's first time at 74kg since the 2020 Olympic Trials in April 2021.
