Hawkeye Wrestling Club athletes Thomas Gilman and Sammy Brooks will be among 17 of USA Wrestling’s men’s freestyle athletes set to compete at the 2019 Continental Cup in Khasavjurt, Russia, Oct. 11-13.

Thomas Gilman, who will compete at 57 kg, is a 2017 Senior World silver medalist and two-time Senior World Team member. He was also a three-time All American from 2015-2017 while competing for the University of Iowa.

This will mark Gilman’s first international event since the Dan Kolov Tournament in Ukraine in March, where he finishes outside of the top-10. Prior to that, he won bronze at the prestigious Ivan Yarygin Grand Prix in January, and last October, he was fifth at the 2018 World Championships.

This season, Gilman is No. 2 on the National Team at 57 kg.

Sammy Brooks, who will compete at 86 kg, was a 2017 U23 World Team member. He was a two-time All American while competing for the University of Iowa in 2016 & 2017.

The competition runs from Oct. 11-13. USA Wrestling will update with results as they are received.
