WHAT IS WRESTLING ALL ABOUT?
The oldest sport. With the possible exception of athletics, wrestling is recognized as the world’s oldest competitive sport. Indeed cave drawings of wrestlers have been found dating as far back as 3000 BC. The sport was introduced into the ancient Olympics in 708 BC.
USA Wrestling is the National Governing Body for the Sport of Wrestling in the United States and, as such, is its representative to the United States Olympic Committee.
