    How Does the 2024 U20 Men's Freestyle Team Compare to Teams of the Recent Past?

    After this weekend’s action in Geneva, Ohio our three U20 World Teams are set for action in the U20 World Championships in Pontevedra, Spain in early September. For now, we’re focusing on the U20 men’s freestyle team as it was finalized on Saturday and is mighty imposing. If you’d like to hear from each of these wrestlers, our interviews with them are posted here.

    As a reminder, the group we’re referencing is:

    57 kg: Luke Lilledahl, 61 kg: Marcus Blaze, 65 kg: Bo Bassett, 70 kg: PJ Duke, 74 kg: Ladarion Lockett, 79 kg: Zack Ryder, 86 kg: Josh Barr, 92 kg: Connor Mirasola, 97 kg: Justin Rademacher, 125 kg: Ben Kueter

    Imposing might not even be the perfect adjective to describe the squad. How about “best ever"? Or at least in recent memory? 

    There has been more and more competition as of late for spots on the U20 (formerly Junior) World Team, combined with the fact that wrestlers are more and more advanced at a younger age. With those two factors together, it makes for an absurd combination of talent.
