The Chicago Wrestling Club Message Board › No practice Thursday, Dec. 26; New international freestyle & greco rules an
Thursday, December 26, there will be no wrestling practice because HiFi is closing at 6 PM. Actually, if anyone wants to work out earlier in the day the mats will be available all day because all jiu-jitsu classes have been cancelled.
On a completely unrelated topic, FILA announced new rules and weight classes for international competition this week. You can read all about them in the following article:
As previously announced, there will be 6 weight classes each for greco, freestyle and women in the Olympics. For non-Olympic competition there will be 8. No word yet on what changes there will be for veterans. In addition, there are anumber of modifications to scoring. In my opinion, these changes are a real improvement.
Happy holidays to everyone.
