No Holds Barred: Gary Abbott of USA Wrestling Previews 2010 World Wrestling Championships
On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman and Gary Abbott, the Director of Communications of USA Wrestling, preview the 2010 World Wrestling Championships.
This event takes place Monday, September 6, through Sunday, September 12, at the Sports Centre Olimpiskiy in Moscow, Russia.
USA Wrestling has a special section on the World Championships on TheMat.com.
Our interview previewed this event by focusing upon many of the top and champion wrestlers from around the world in the three styles which will be contested: men's and women's freestyle wrestling, and Greco-Roman wrestling. We discussed the U.S. entries this year, and their chances of winning medals against the international competition.
We also discussed the significance of this event being held in Russia this year, the always-controversial rules of wrestling, the annual predictions of international wrestling journalists of gold medal winners (including both of us), how to follow this event live, and more.
The No Holds Barred theme song is called "The Heist", by Ian Carpenter.
