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.

For the eighth straight week, we have post 10 of these on TheMat.com so more people can check them out. All of these photos will also be considered for USA Wrestler now or in the future. As we keep getting pictures during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will keep trying to do this story weekly. Got a great wrestling image? Please send it in!!!

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 are 10 photos that USA Wrestling received and are proud to share. Keep them coming, please.
