The U.S. Olympic Wrestling Trials will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network on tape delay, the U.S. Olympic Committee and NBC Sports Group announced on Wednesday.

The trials — which will be held in Carver-Hawkeye Arena on April 21-22 — will be aired in two segments, with each being broadcast the day after the live event.

Coverage from the April 21 trials will air 3-6 p.m. April 22. The April 22 wrestling will be shown 2-5 p.m. April 23.

The aired coverage won't encompass all the action from Carver-Hawkeye; each day will include nine hours of live wrestling. Both days will feature morning preliminary sessions from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., and evening finals sessions from 6-9 p.m.

NBC Sports will only air the second session from each day.

Although the televised wrestling coverage will be truncated, it will serve as part of a record-setting 67.5 total hours of coverage of 10 sports' trials. Wrestling will be the first of the sports to be featured, and the coverage will end in July, when the U.S. water-polo team faces China.

The Daily Iowan will have live coverage and updates of all the wrestling action on dailyiowan.com and via Twitter.
