As part of its coverage of the combat sports of the 2012 Olympics, Bloody Elbow will be bringing you live results during every day of wrestling competition.

Wrestling will start each day at 8:00 AM est, medal finals will take place at 12:45.

Wrestling's three disciplines will be contested over the next week. Greco will come first, then women's, and finally, the main event, men's freestyle will be held starting on next Friday.

Today, the second day of Greco competition, brings us the 66kg and 96kg weight classes

brackets are here


After the jump, Mike Riordan is going to be typing furiously, bringing you only the freshest of wrestling results.

Due to an infant son, I am on 4 hours of sleep and am thoroughly punch drunk, expect me to say wacky stuff and doze off throughout the day.

The US doesn't have a representative at 96 kilos, Justin Ruiz didn't qualify :(.

But today we see Justin Lester wrestle with the hopes of American Greco resting on his shoulder. He is our best shot at a medal and his draw to the finals is very favorable. He could really do this, if he doesn't I will be ever so pissed.

Enjoy the liveblog
