    The 2009 Grappling World Championships in Florida were just 15 weeks ago, but the world?s best Grapplers are coming together again this weekend for another World Championships.

    The 2010 Grappling World Championships will be held in Krakow, Poland, March 27-28, with competition in both No-Gi and Gi Grappling.

    The U.S. is the reigning World team champions in No-Gi and Gi Grappling for both men and women, which it won in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. in December 2009.

    FILA will allow only one athlete per weight class per nation in the 2010 World Championships.

    It will be a difficult task for the U.S. to defend its team titles this weekend, mainly due to the short time between World Championships. The 2010 U.S. Grappling World Team consists of athletes who competed in the World meet in Florida, and were able to raise enough money and free up their time to be able to compete.

    The U.S. lineup is slightly different than originally announced, due to some injuries and schedule conflicts to athletes. The U.S. delegation will include 13 athletes and two coaches. Nine of the U.S. Grapplers will compete in both the No-Gi and Gi divisions in their weight class.

    The U.S. Men?s No-Gi team will feature 2009 Grappling World champions Zachary Makovsky (Philadelphia, Pa./Philadelphia Fight Factory) at 60 kg/132 lbs. and Tom LeCuyer (Plano, Ill./Atlas XT/Torres MA) at 70 kg/154 lbs. The team also features 2009 World silver medalists Dennis Prokopos (Milbrae, Calif./10th Planet Jiu Jitsu) at 65 kg/143 lbs. and Mario Rinaldi (Port St. Lucia, Fla./American Top Team) in the Open division.

    The U.S. Men?s Gi team is led by 2009 World silver medalist Din Thomas (Coconut Creek, Fla./American Top Team) at 70 kg/154 lbs. Also on the team is 2009 World bronze medalist Brian Mahecha (Coconut Creek, Fla./American Top Team) at 65 kg/143 lbs.

    The U.S. No-Gi women?s team will feature 2008 World champion Lisa Ward (Lacey, Wash./Victory Athletics) at 50 kg/110 lbs. and 2009 World champion Jessica Aguilar (Coconut Creek, Fla./American Top Team) at 55 kg/121 lbs. Also competing is 2009 World silver medalist Tara LaRosa (Woodstown, N.J./Philadelphia Fight Factory) at 60 kg/132 lbs.

    All three women will also compete in the women?s Gi division. Ward was a 2008 World champion in Gi Grappling, and LaRosa was a 2009 World champion in Gi Grappling in two divisions, adding the gold medal in the Open division to go with her win at 59 kg. Aguilar did not compete in Gi Grappling at the 2009 Worlds in Florida.

    Coaching the U.S. delegation will be Sheldon Marr of Aurora, Colo. and Shawn Sheldon of West Palm Beach, Fla., both who were members of the 2009 U.S. Grappling World Team coaching staff.

    The U.S. team did not have a pre-competition training camp this year. The athletes and the coaches take great pride in the quality of American Grappling, and seek to bring home a number of medals from Poland this weekend.

    FILA is pleased to announce the start of the 3rd World Grappling Championships and 4th World Pankration Championships in Cracow, Poland. Host Nation Poland has prepared a wonderful Championship at the new Skala Sports Hall which has already been the site of several major international combat events. In a first for FILA Grappling, this is the first World Championship with a limit of one entrant per country making this truly a World Championship. Even with this rule, the growth and popularity of FILA grappling is reflected by a record number of 23 participating countries. FILA Grappling welcomes first time Nations Germany, Sweden, Ukraine, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Russia and South Africa. Pankration is due to begin tomorrow, with 17 Nations registering athletes to date. In another first for Grappling and Pankration, the top 8 athletes in selected weight classes at this event will win qualification for The SportsAccord Combat Games to be held in Beijing, China.

    These championships under FILA guidelines similar to those already used in wrestling, will also sees the amalgamation of the Grappling and Pankration referees. Referees will now officiate in both styles at this event, with the addition of Combat Grappling in the future. Similar to the athletes, the top 8 referees at this event will be selected to officiate at the SportAccord Combat Games. This event is a wonderful example to other Nations, of how the national Wrestling and Grappling Federations can work together to host a major international event. Praise must be given to both the Polish Wrestling Federation and the Polish Grappling Committee for their efforts in promoting and running this event. FILA acknowledges the exemplary work of the Polish Wrestling Federation for its technical support, experience and advice provided, but also the hands on work by many wrestling officials in helping run this event. FILA also recognises the professionalism and enthusiasm of the Polish Grappling Committee and its members in their preparation for hosting these World Championships.

    On the Friday before the Championships, a general assembly of grappling nations was held and the nations present voted to accept the rule change for sweeps. This rule changes which will come into force at this Championships. In effect all reversals from a bottom position to a top position with control of three seconds regardless of finishing position on top will receive sweep points.
