Our best team is Cox at 97 and Snyder at 125.

I think Dake takes Burroughs and Cox beats Snyder.

I agree - and I said the very same thing on a different forum and I was royally lambasted.  The general consensus was that Gwiz and even Gable could be Snyder which I find someone what ludicrous.

I think this issue needs to be decided before its too late for Snyder to move up, or Cox to go down.

I believe 74 and 97.  We need to qualify the others.

So they have the Pan American qualifying next month in Ottawa. Note, Taylor will finally be back on the mat defending his 2019 title.  There's a last world qualifier out there but I cant find any details on it.

Entries
57 kg: Daton Fix (Stillwater, Okla./Titan Mercury WC)
65 kg: Zain Retherford (State College, Pa./Nittany Lion WC)
86 kg: David Taylor (State College, Pa./Nittany Lion WC)
125 kg: Nick Gwiazdowski (Raleigh, N.C./Titan Mercury WC/Wolfpack WC)

Greco better kick some butt, no weights have qualified as yet.

Entries
60 kg: Ildar Hafizov (Colorado Springs, Colo./Army WCAP)
67 kg: Ellis Coleman (Colorado Springs, Colo./Army WCAP)
77 kg: Pat Smith (Minneapolis, Minn./Minnesota Storm)
87 kg: Joe Rau (Chicago, Ill./Chicago RTC)

When there is a qualifier - is it winner take all?

Not sure what you mean winner take all.  It's not the WSOP Texas Holdem' Final Table.

The winner of a qualifying tournament, gets the tournament gold medal, but qualifies the country for entry into that weight class.  It doesn't qualify the wrestler for the Olympics, just the country at that weight class.  Each country then decides which wrestler will represent the country in the Olympics.

For the Pan American qualifier, only Gold and Silver qualify for the country (2) for that weight class.  Bronze keeps you waving from the stands.

The US OlympicTrials determine which wrestler and alternate will represent the US in the Olympics at the weight classes that the US has qualified to participate in.  Right now the US has only qualified for two.in men's FS and 2 in women's FS

Is the objective of the trials to select the best team or to provide a ranking ladder? There are good arguments for both.

In dont think our best team will include Snyder as the alternative at 97kg.

Maybe not, but there is no team medal in Olympic wrestling.  Fundamentally its an individuals sport.
