Greco-Roman, 60kg: Ildar Hafizov beat Ryan Mango 7-0 in their first bout and held him off the scoresheet again in their second match. At 33 years old, Hafizov is set to make his Olympic debut in Tokyo.
Greco-Roman, 67kg: Alejandro Sancho got the better of Ellis Coleman in their first match, though it was a low-scoring affair that ended 2-0 in Sancho’s favor. Their second bout ended with the same result — a low score and another victory for Sancho, giving him a trip to the Olympics.
Greco-Roman, 77kg: Jesse Porter defeated Peyton Walsh fairly comfortably with an 8-1 score in their first bout, but the second leg of their series was much closer. Porter won 7-7 on criteria in the second bout, making him the 2021 U.S. Olympic Team Trials winner as a No. 10 seed. He will still need to qualify the weight in order to take part in the Tokyo Games.
Greco-Roman, 87kg: John Stefanowicz is Tokyo bound after sweeping Joe Rau. But just as important as Stefanowicz’s Olympic berth were the shoes Rau left on the mat after his loss to Stefanowicz, signifying his retirement. The 30-year-old received a standing ovation from all those in attendance.
Greco-Roman, 97kg: G’Angelo Hancock had no issues with Braxton Amos. Hancock was perfect in the first period, beating Amos by a score of 5-0 after three minutes. It was more of the same in the second period, with Hancock taking the first bout via technical superiority 8-0. In bout No. 2, Hancock won by a score of 8-0 again to cement his title as an Olympian.
Greco-Roman, 130kg: Adam Coon defeated Cohlton Schultz on criteria in their second tilt to complete the sweep. But like Porter, Coon will need to qualify the weight to participate in Tokyo.
