This June, a handful of wrestlers from the US University of Norwich will head to the Mongolian capital Ulaanbaatar, as part of the “Norwich Wrestling Mongolian Cultural Exchange” to train and compete in freestyle wrestling.
On 3 June, five Norwich wrestlers and three coaches, as well as a handful of other coaches and athletes, will embark on what the Norwich Wrestling page describes as “an amazing experience for our student-athletes,” to train and compete at the Mongolian Olympic Training Centre. They will be training and competing there until their return to the United States on June 17.
According to information on the Norwich wrestling team’s Instagram page, the trip will cost around $2,500. The student-athletes attending this trip are saving their money to pay for the opportunity of a lifetime.
