Wrestling rules change: The U.S. National High School Athletic Association has approved two-piece uniforms for wrestling in hopes of increasing participation in the ancient sport. Starting in 2017-18, prep wrestlers can wear either a traditional singlet or a uniform featuring tight compression shorts and a shirt. The singlet can often be an unflattering uniform — especially for wrestlers in higher weight classes — and the association says experimental use of a two-piece uniform was met with positive reviews. The international wrestling federation has previously explored the idea of two-piece uniforms in the Greco-Roman discipline for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
