Carver-Hawkeye Arena will again play host to the Olympic Team Trials ahead for the Rio de Janeiro games in 2016.

The trials will take place on April 8-10, 2016, and will decide the Olympic team members.

Iowa also hosted the event in 2012; it was immensely popular and drew a record crowd of more than 54,000 for the two-day event.

The Hawkeye wrestling program has produced 17 Olympians, and they have won 10 medals.

That deep Olympic tradition in the program has generated five gold medalists — the last being current head coach Tom Brands in 1996.
