Before action gets underway at the Olympic Trials, we already have shocking news to report. Two-time world champion and 2016 Olympic bronze medalist J'Den Cox will not be competing in today's trials. Unnamed sources have told Intermat that Cox was struggling to make weight and finally did so after the allotted time. Afterwards, a committee met to discuss the issue and came to this decision. Cox is not currently listed in the brackets. The Des Moines Register's Cody Goodwin first reported Cox's status for the Trials and USA Wrestling has confirmed this as well.
