    Default Wrestlers Eligible for Olympic Redshirts

    World Team Trials is coming up here in a few weeks for this year and while they won't effect who is and who isn't eligible for these its a topic that may spur some interest.

    Just a reminder first of all of the new criteria this year, wrestlers must fit into one of these three categories.

    1. Past Senior World and Olympic Team Members
    2. Top 8 finishers at 2011 Senior Nationals
    3. Top 3 finishers at 2011 NCAA's OR past NCAA champion AND top 2 finish at 2011 University Nationals.

    Eligible Wrestlers
    Frank Perrelli (Criteria #2)
    Tyler Lehmann (Criteria #2, contingent on if he leaves the OTC for college this year)
    Jarod Trice (Criteria #2)
    Nikko Triggas (Criteria #2)
    Jason Lara (Criteria #2)
    Steve Andrus (Criteria #2)
    Andrew Long (Criteria #3)
    Andrew Howe (Criteria #3)
    Kyle Dake (Criteria #3)
    Quentin Wright (Criteria #3)
    Dom Bradley (Criteria #3)

    Not saying that any of these guys will or won't (definitely some intriguing possibilities though) just that they're the guys who are eligible.

    THAT list is a lot smaller than I thought it would be .
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    I agree, or would say that it is a lot smaller than those in previous years. Haven't they tightened the requirements for an Oly RS year? Does anyone know what they used to be?

    So Anthony Robles wasn't eligible for an Olympic redshirt?

    FYI, Jesse Thielke doesn't need an Olympic redshirt. His clock hasn't started yet, so his attempt to make the 2012 Olympic team in Greco was not contingent on him meeting any of the aforementioned criteria.

    Thanks, SHP. That was very interesting. I, too, was quite surprised by how few even meet the criteria!

    HAHAHA! Not too far off. Brad Pataky was the most comical that I had seen.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
