Though wrestling has already started in the 2016 Olympics, there is still plenty left to be seen of it, particularly in women's wrestling. On August 17th a number of early elimination rounds for various forms of women's wrestling will be occurring, starting at 9:00 am EST. These wrestling rounds can easily be live streamed here, should you have access to an NBC Sports subscription.
One of these women's wrestling events is the 48 kg freestyle, and one of the wrestlers that will be competing in it in hopes of winning a medal for their home country is the U.S.'s Haley Augello. Augello is participating in her first ever Olympic games at the age of 21. At a young age, she has still had an incredibly impressive career in wrestling, be it in high school, college, or in various tournaments around the world. The Olympic audience will see on the morning of the 17th, however, if this success will translate to taking home the Olympic gold. (Instagram/haleyaugello)
