Olympic Fight Top 10 Countdown: No. 10 Battle at the Falls



In honor of wrestling being reinstated as an Olympic sport for the 2020 and 2024 Olympic games USA Wrestling will be counting down the top 10 moments in wrestling’s Olympic fight.

Leading off the countdown at No. 10 is the Battle at the Falls women’s wrestling duals held on May 31, 2013 in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

The Battle at the Falls was the final event of World Wrestling Month featuring women’s wrestling teams from the United States, Canada and Ukraine.

Canada emerged victorious winning both duals against the United States (18-10) and Ukraine (20-11). The U.S. team defeated Ukraine 16-13 to finish in second place.

The event was a display of wrestling’s unity as all three teams came together to support the Olympic movement.
