WrestlingOlympic Wrestling is a combat sport that the main objective is to put the shoulder blades of the opponent on the ground, with enough time to get the "pin or fall", or winning by a score difference given by the value of the techniques and actions performed over the opponent. The competitors are differentiated by using blue and red tights.
Olympic Wrestling is divided in three styles: Grecco-Roman, Female Freestyle and Male Freestyle. The difference between the Grecco-Roman and freestyle is that in the first, all throwing, holding and "falls" can only be done from the waist up, whereas in the freestyle, in all technical movement, legs can be used. At the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games, wrestlers Andrés Ayub Valenzuela won the silver medal and Cristóbal Torres Núñez won the bronze medal in the Grecco-roman style, and in the Lima 2019 Pan American Games Yasmani Acosta won the bronze medal for Chile.
