Olympic Greco-Roman Wrestling Team Trains at Northern Michigan University

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

With hundreds of athletes competing on Team USA at the Olympic games in London this summer, you may not realize that nearly all of the Greco Roman Wrestling team representing our country has been training right here in Michigan. Northern Michigan University in Marquette has an Olympic Education Center that focuses on weightlifting and Greco Roman-style wrestling. WDET’s Amy Miller went to the Upper Peninsula and spoke with Northern Michigan University's Brian Gaudreau.
