Beach Brawl Wrestling Championships hit Strand

The 2012 Beach Brawl and SC Beach Wrestling Championships wrapped up this weekend in the sand along the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk.

Beach Wrestling was added as a style of international wrestling in 2005.  Athletes compete on sand, in a style that features take-downs, throws and push outs from a 20-foot diameter ring.

Proceeds from the tournament will go to support club member and Socastee High wrestler Dylan Martin,  who was diagnosed with leukemia last week.

The 2012 US Nationals and World Team Trials will be held in Rochester, NY on July 12-15.  The qualifiers will go on to represent the United States at the FILA Beach Wrestling World Championships in Szombathely, Hungary.
