    Star USA line up in Romania & Poland

    Top U.S. Senior wrestlers set to compete in Poland, Romania | TheMat.com - USA Wrestling

    Nine members of the 2011 U.S. World Team, including seven Greco-Roman wrestlers and two in freestyle, are scheduled to compete in international events this weekend.

    The U.S. World Team in Greco-Roman is scheduled to wrestle at the Pytlasinski International on Friday and Saturday in Radom, Poland.

    The U.S. Greco World Team is led by World champion Dremiel Byers, along with World bronze medalists Justin Lester and Justin Ruiz. Lester and Olympian Spenser Mango are expected to wrestle up a weight class in this event.

    U.S. World Team freestyle members Cael Sanderson and Jake Varner are scheduled to wrestle in the Ion Corneanu Memorial on Saturday and Sunday in Targoviste, Romania.

    Sanderson will compete overseas for the first time since winning the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. The Penn State head coach returned to the mat this year and won the U.S. World Team Trials in June. Varner was a quarterfinalist at the 2009 World Championships in Denmark.

    The U.S. also will send a Greco-Roman squad to compete in the Corneanu event in Romania. 2009 World Team member Chas Betts leads the U.S. team that will compete there.

    A Webcast is available from the Greco event in Poland:

    You were at the tournament? I can't find results for this anywhere. Did Cael win his weight class? I don't think there's a feed available and they supposedly already finished the finals earlier this afternoon, though TheMat has yet to post an update.

    Not exactly a murderer's row of opponents, but nice to see him doing what he should be doing to these guys.
