    I know the US and Russia are very good internationally in wrestling. What are some other countries out there that are good at it?

    Iran probably has the best wrestling in the world

    Italy is pretty damn good

    For some reason I want to say Egypt, but that does not seem completely right

    At least there are some Canadian wins in freestyle. Canada doesn't really practice Greco so I'm not surprised of the lack of medalists. But I can say from experience there are quite a few enthusiasts in Canada.
