Are you sad wrestling is over? Well, it’s not quite over yet Freestyle season is here. Freestyle was first invented in the 1904 it originated in the English Lancashire. Freestyle is one of the most popular among the many styles and types or wrestling that is practiced around the world. Freestyle also made its debut at the Olympics at the 1904 St Louis Summer Games. But it was not until the 1920 in Antwerp that freestyle wrestling became a permanent fixture at the Olympics. Freestyle has been a major part of the Olympics since and has also been featured at the latest edition at Tokyo.

Some more things about wrestling and how you score, and the rules are a freestyle bout is divided into two periods of three minutes each. But cedants and Veterans matches are curtailed to two minutes each. the way it’s played is there are two wrestlers competing on a mat, the primary objective is to pin the opponent’s shoulders to the mat. Some ways to win the most popular ways to win are by scoring points they can get these points by executing legal holds, throws, takedowns, or trying to get your opponent’s back to face the mat.

The moves you do carry different number of points according to the amount of difficulty a move can be 1 to 5 points You can also get points if your opponent executes illegal holds. If you or your opponent get three cautions which you get by doing illegal holds it will result in, you or your opponent being automatically disqualified. At the end of a bout if one of the opponents does not win with a pin, they can either win by points whoever has the most points when. But if the points add up and they are equal and both opponents have the same number of points, they will go into overtime and whoever gets the first take down or points automatically wins the bout.

Sara Valencia, Contributor
Hey! I’m Sara Valencia and this is my first year in Santa Maria High School. I am also an athlete here at the high school. I am on the wrestling team. I am 14 years old I was born on the 10th of May, majority of my family members are born in May. it’s very common in our family to be born in May. I have had so many pets in the past but unfortunately they all passed away. I have had many many birds, a bunny, a dog, a rabbit. Unfortunately, like I said, they have all passed away. So now I only have two cats Oreo, and Michis. I have had Oreo for about six years now, and Michis I barley got him this year. I am truly both a dog and a cat person. Well, I’m an animal person because I like any type of animals/pets. This is my first time in journalism and if I’m being honest it is pretty fun. Some of my favorite hobbies are listening to music, and spending time with my family, especially my aunt. I am very excited for this school year and i am looking forward to it!.
