Is the Wrestling Singlet in Trouble?


Great article on the wrestling singlet. Traditionally wrestling was nude – the modern wrestling singlet combines function and form to reveal an athletic competitor’s raw power. Thanks to singlets and stuff for the content and post.

2012 Team USA Media Summit

The singlet…the modern uniform and arguably the most recognizable aspect of amateur wrestling (folkstyle, freestyle, and greco-roman).  However, the sport may be getting a new look in the coming years, which may not include the iconic one-piece.

Ever since the IOC (International Olympic Committee) announced the removal of wrestling from the 2020 Olympics in February of last year, it sparked a wildfire of wrestlers, fans, and supporters from across the globe.  It also shook up the governing body of FILA ( Fédération Internationale des Luttes Associées or International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles), who replaced their president and started to put forth proposals to help “modernize” the sport as well as make it more appealing to the masses.

THE EXPAT RUNNER

I was right. I’m a tight ass. The pain on the outside of my knee experienced when running downhill during the NM Galaxy 15km was (and continues to be caused) by tightness in my buttocks and hips. It’s classic ITB syndrome. I’ve been to physio twice and have been stretched and pummelled which has really helped, and I’m stretching and using a foam roller at home.
