International wrestling is in some outstanding company, as the NBC TODAY Show is looking for its funniest feature from the entire 2012 year.

This appears on the TODAY Show website this morning:

TODAY wants to know what made you LOL the most in 2012. We've narrowed down more than 60,000 minutes to 10 classic clips.

The winner will be announced Friday before the annual Year-Ender, a TODAY tradition that looks back at the year that was.


One of the finalist segments is the feature from the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. TODAY anchors Matt Lauer and Al Roker attended a U.S. Olympic Team Greco-Roman practice, where they received instruction from Olympians Dremiel Byers and Ellis Coleman, as well as National Greco-Roman Coach Steve Fraser.

The wrestlers tossed Matt and Al around during the training session. Later, Matt and Al got suited up for a Greco-Roman match on the mat at the Olympic venue. This funny segment was shown to the national audience at the conclusion of the Olympic Games.

Help get wrestling some additional national publicity by voting the Greco-Roman feature as the funniest clip on the TODAY Show this year.
