COLUMBIA, Mo. - Missouri senior heavyweight Dom Bradley (120 kg/264.5 lbs.) and former Tiger All-American and current strength and conditioning coach Nicholas Marable (74 kg/163 lbs) are amongst the first qualifiers for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials, set to take place April 21-22 in Iowa City, Iowa. USA Wrestling released the initial list of qualifiers, which includes 65 wrestlers across three different Olympic styles.

Each of the three Olympic styles of wrestling will have a different qualification process, as proposed by their individual Sports Committees, presented by USA Wrestling and approved by the USOC. Athletes who have already qualified include past U.S. World and Olympic Team members in all three styles, and the top three placewinners at the 2011 U.S. World Team Trials in men's freestyle.

Marable and Bradley each qualified due to having won their true third place match at the 2011 World Team Trials back in June. Bradley is taking an Olympic redshirt this season to pursue this opportunity to make Team USA.
