A Great Day for Wrestling

The SportsTravel team and I were pleased to attend the United 4 Wrestling exhibition presented by USA Wrestling at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena on May 19. Sponsored by the Semnani Family Foundation and a combined effort from the Committee for the Preservation of Olympic Wrestling, Beat the Streets-LA, California USA Wrestling and the Keep Olympic Wrestling campaign, the event featured wrestling matches ranging from youth girls and boys—including an exciting match between two 9-year-old female USA wrestlers—to Olympic-winning men and women from the United States, Canada and Russia.

A red carpet event prior to the exhibition helped promote the sport of wrestling and advocated keeping the founding Olympic sport in the 2020 Olympics.
