Wrestling Camp Comes to Normal

Wrestlers arrive from all over the nation.

Normal - One of the fastest growing wrestling camps in the nation is in the twin cities for the first time this week.

It's called Iron Sharpens Iron. Drills are aimed to help refine technique and to get matches against top level competition.

There are categories for high school students and grade schoolers.

More than 1500 campers came in from 13 states for the challenge.

"I want to go collegiate with it, and you know, in Texas, it's a smaller state," said Joey Tanos, a senior from Keller, Texas. "Wrestling isn't big yet. So, you have to move around to get, you know, good national competition."

Caleb Hagberg, Normal West senior said, "It's really a rebuilding session right now. Trying to get back into wrestling, get the feel before actual competition starts."

The camp first started in Iowa four years ago with less than 200 campers.
