No Holds Barred: An Artful Start to Wrestling at the 2012 Olympics 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman comments on the first four of the eight days of wrestling at the 2012 London Olympics.

Greco-Roman wrestling had three days of action, from August 5 to 7, while women's freestyle wrestling had the first of its two days of action on August 8. Women's freestyle wrestling concludes on August 9, while men's freestyle wrestling takes place August 10-12.

The three days of Greco-Roman wrestling saw tremendous displays of art, technique, and drama. Although their team has been successful in freestyle, Iran had never won an Olympic gold medal in Greco, until now. They did it in style, taking three gold medals in the seven weight classes.

Among the topics analyzed are how the scoring broke down in the Greco gold medal matches, the debate on the rules of Greco-Roman wrestling, and the decline of the U.S. Greco team, which did not win any medals. Also discussed are the first two women's freestyle gold medal matches which were won by wrestlers from Japan, the debate on the rules of freestyle wrestling, and more.
