NEW YORK, N.Y. – The gold-medal finals of the 2012 New York Athletic Club International has been set in Greco-Roman and women’s freestyle on Friday.

In Greco-Roman, two-time Olympian Spenser Mango (Colorado Springs, Colo./New York AC) will face 2012 University World champion Max Nowry (Wheeling, Ill./New York AC/USOEC) at 55 kg/121 lbs. It is a rematch of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials finals series, won by Mango. Both are past University World champions.

There are three other all-U.S. finals in Greco-Roman:
• At 74 kg/163 lbs. – Andrew Bisek (Minnesota Storm) vs. Jake Fisher (Minnesota Storm)

Sluberski, who now attends college in Canada, will face Yuki Ikegame of Japan in the final match.
