Our 2015 Down Under Sports Wrestling Tournament participants came from the USA, New Zealand, Australia, and American Samoa. Athletes were very excited to wrestle and represent their country in an international competition. It has been said that it is not always about the destination but about the journey. Each of these athletes worked hard to earn a place and a chance to represent their hometown, state, and country. This year the teams consisted of a combination of wrestlers from each nation. There was not an American team or a New Zealand team, rather there was a team called Phoenix, Bald Eagles, Kea, and Sunbirds. This brought a different team unity, it was fun to see and hear Americans cheering on their teammates from New Zealand, Australia, Samoa and USA. This is a very exciting and memorable experience!
One official weigh-in is done before the first tournament using the USA Junior Weight Classes: 98, 106, 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 170, 182, 195, 220, 285.
