IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

An all-time U.S. Olympic Wrestling Trials attendance record will be set this weekend as Iowa City plays host to the Olympic wrestling trials Saturday and sunday at Carver Hawkeye Arena.

Wrestlers in 18 weight classes will vie for spots on the United States Olympic team, bound for the London Olympics this summer. 

More than 10,000 tickets have been sold for the two-day event, as advanced ticket sales have already broken the Olympic Wrestling Trials record for the most tickets sold.

Several wrestlers with ties to Iowa, Iowa State, UNI and Wartburg have earned spots in the trials. Watch our Top Videos for reports on some of those wrestlers.
