what is Olympic Freestyle Wrestling?
Olympic Freestyle Wrestling Olympic Freestyle wrestling is technically a fighting form similar to grappling but there is no striking as you would expect to find in various martial arts, for example karate or kick boxing. You don’t need to be naturally aggressive either as much success in competition can be gained from using speed and technique. Contestants may apply holds above and below the waist and may use their legs for all holds. If both the shoulders of a contestant are forced to the mat simultaneously, however briefly, a fall is scored and the match ends. If no fall takes place, a winner is chosen on a point basis. Wrestlers may be penalized for passivity in a match. If there is a tie at the end of a match, the wrestler with more technical points will win.
