National Greco-Roman Coach Matt Lindland talks prior to the first weigh-in at the World Championships in Paris. The team completed its training with an acclimation camp in Montpelier, France. The first four USA wrestlers weigh in today, as Pat Smith, Mason Manville, Ben Provisor and G'Angelo Hancock are the first Americans to take the mat Monday. Lindland says his athletes are confident, and they need to come out and score points in order to achieve their goals.
