USA Wrestling is taking over Frisco on back-to-back weekends starting at the end of the month, with two major international events at Dr Pepper Arena.

The Pan American Wrestling Championships kick things off February 26 – 28, followed by the Pan American Olympic Games Qualifier March 4 – 6, which will prominently feature three native Texans:

2012 Olympian and two-time World bronze medalist Tervel Dlagnev of Arlington, Texas will compete in men’s freestyle, and U.S. Open champion Tamyrah Mensah of Katy, Texas will compete in the women’s freestyle. 2000 Olympic champion Brandon Slay of Amarillo, Texas is now a USA Wrestling Assistant National Freestyle Coach, who will be helping lead Team USA to victory here in Frisco.

The Pan American is a major qualifier for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, and you can be there as history is made. The top two place winners in each of the 18 Olympic weight classes will qualify their nation to compete in Rio.

Tickets are now available for both 3-day events at Dr Pepper Arena in Frisco:

Single-Day Pass: $14.50

Three-Day Pass: $39.50

Six-Day Pass: $59.50
