STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (WTAJ) – The Bryce Jordan Center was set to host USA Wrestling’s Olympic Team Trials in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic hit. The event will instead return to Happy Valley at a later date.
Penn State athletics and USA Wrestling made the announcement Monday.
Penn State and the BJC will instead host the wrestling Olympic Team Trials in 2024.
According to a Penn State media release, the 2021 trials will move to a location still to be determined. The decision to move locations is 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.”
The 2021 Trials – originally scheduled for April 4, 2020 – are expected to take place in “early April 2021.”
