Every issue of USA Wrestler, the official magazine of USA Wrestling, there is a photo contest of wrestling images sent in by our member wrestling families. In most editions, three nice photos are published for the wrestling community to enjoy.

Photos are sent in all year, and many are not chosen for the magazine, but are some pretty sweet wrestling images. During this time away from the mat, we are receiving even more pictures as families have some time to look at their photos and send them in.

We have decided to post these on TheMat.com so more people can check them out. For the time being, USA Wrestling will post 10 different Photo Contest images. These photos will also be considered for the next edition of USA Wrestler.

USA Wrestler is seeking your best wrestling photography for publication in a future issue of the magazine, or to be posted on TheMat.com or on USA Wrestling’s Instagram account. USA Wrestling reserves the right to publish all materials submitted for the Photo Contest with no restrictions! E-mail photos to: gabbott@usawrestling.org

Here is our first batch of pictures for you to enjoy
