    Three Greco-Roman Weights Qualified for 2024 Olympics

    Wednesday marked the first day of the Pan-American Olympic Games Qualifier and Greco-Roman took center stage. At the 2023 World Championships, the United States did not qualify any Greco weights for the Olympics, so they needed all six wrestlers on the day to advance to the finals. A semifinals win earned a quota for that wrestler’s country. 

    When it was all said and done, half of the American contingent was able to win in the semifinals and earn the United States a spot in the Paris Games. 

    The final three wrestlers in the American lineup were the ones who clinched the quotes, Spencer Woods (87 kg), Alan Vera (97 kg), and Cohlton Schultz (130 kg). While the United States is guaranteed a spot in the Olympic Games at those weights, the actual wrestler who represents the country will be determined at the Olympic Team Trials in April. 

    For the weights that were not qualified, there will be a Last Chance Qualifying event in early-May.
