This year’s U.S. Olympic Team Wrestling Trials were to be held at Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center, but that no longer will be the case, the university and USA Wrestling announced this afternoon.

As you can see below, it was announced that Penn State will host the U.S. Trials in 2024.

This is from the USA Wrestling release, which can be found here:

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; USA Wrestling, Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics and the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee have collectively decided that the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Wrestling, originally scheduled for April 4-5, 2020, will not be held at the Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Pennsylvania.
 
USA Wrestling and Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics worked to reschedule the event in 2021. However, a decision to relocate the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Wrestling was made due to a variety of factors, including current COVID-19 health and safety guidelines and the desire to provide the ability to accommodate all of the participants, staff and fans.
 
In addition to the announcement of the relocation of this year’s U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Wrestling, USA Wrestling, Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics and the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee announced Penn State and the Bryce Jordan Center will host the 2024 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Wrestling.

USA Wrestling is currently in negotiations to secure a new location for the competition, targeting the early April 2021 time frame. USA Wrestling expects that it will be able to finalize this arrangement in the near future.
