USA Wrestling has named James Green (Lincoln, Neb./Titan Mercury WC), the winner of the 2015 U.S. World Team Trials at 70 kg/154 lbs. in men’s freestyle wrestling, as the World Team Member at 70kg. Green will represent the United States at the 2015 World Championships.
USA Wrestling’s Freestyle Sport Committee denied a request by 2015 U.S. Open champion Nick Marable (Morgantown, W.Va./Sunkist Kids) for a delay of competition for the Final Wrestle-off at 70 kg/154 lbs. in men’s freestyle wrestling for the 2015 U.S. World Championships Team.
Based upon the 2015 World Team Trials Procedures, Marable, as the U.S. Open champion at 70 kg, earned an automatic berth into the Final Wrestle-off of the U.S. World Team Trials in Madison, Wisconsin. However, Marable did not attend weigh-ins for the 70 kg weight class on Friday, June 12 due to reported injury and, pursuant to the 2015 World Team Trials Procedures, Marable made the request for delay of the Final Wrestle-off within 18 hours of the weigh-in.
This process is included in the 2015 World Team Trials Procedures, under IV. Delays or Replacement Due to Injury or Illness.
