The 2014 Down Under Sorts Wrestling Tournament was held in the beautiful city of Auckland, New Zealand. Wrestlers from the United States, New Zealand and Australia came together for two days of spirited competition. All three countries had gold medal winners in the individual weight classes and the team dual was won by the United States. A high level of sportsmanship and camaraderie made this tourna- ment a positive experience for the athletes. This year saw the use of the TrackWrestling program that gave parents and friends in the US the match results immediately.
The Beach Wrestling Tournament was hosted on the Gold Coast of Australia, with the pacific ocean as the perfect backdrop for this outstanding event. Once wrestling concluded there was a stampede to the ocean to wash away the sand and cool off in the surf.
One official weigh-in is done before the first tourna- ment using the USA Junior Weight Classes: 98, 106, 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 170, 182, 195, 220, 285.
