The University of Iowa will be well represented at U23 Freestyle Nationals this weekend. This tournament will also serve as the U23 World Team Trials. The winner of this tournament will represent Team USA at the U23 World Championships in Budapest, Hungary on October 28-November 3.  

All of the action will take place Saturday and Sunday in the Louis and Freda Stile Athletic House on the campus of the University of Akron in Akron, Ohio.
