Wrestlers At The Trials is a powerful collection of stories about 90 remarkable wrestlers - in their own words. These amateur wrestlers from the 1960s, '70s and '80s had a common goal…to make the US Olympic wrestling team. Their compelling stories - most of which have never been told until now - reveal their ordeals: fighting backroom politics and racial prejudices; surviving weight-cutting countdowns and physical training beyond - way beyond - normal boundaries. From the tongues of Blubaugh, Douglas, Owings, Gable, Farrell, Schalles, Kemp, Mills, Schultz, Fraser, Monday and many other great wrestlers…read their stories of glorious achievements and punishing defeats.
