NBC Sports to Present BEAT THE STREETS Team USA v The World Wrestling Meet, 5/7

2012 U.S. Olympic gold medalist Jordan Burroughs highlights a field of top wrestlers in one of the world's most iconic settings on Wednesday night, when USA Wrestling and NBCSN combine to present the Beat The Streets Team USA vs. The World international wrestling dual meet from Times Square in New York City at 10:30 p.m. ET.

The event features 11 top American international wrestling stars against a team of all-stars from around the world, set outside in the heart of New York City. Team USA's accolades include a total of 14 NCAA titles, four Hodge Trophy awards, 12 U.S. Open titles, six World Team berths, six Junior World medals plus an Olympic gold medal, an Olympic bronze medal, two Senior World titles and a Junior World gold medal.

Three past Dan Hodge Trophy winners, given each year to the nation's best college wrestler, will compete for Team USA. David Taylor won two Dan Hodge Trophies competing for Penn State. Other Hodge award winners include Burroughs, who wrestled for Nebraska, and Brent Metcalf, who wrestled for Iowa.

2008 Olympic bronze medalist Randi Miller will compete in a women's freestyle match, as will 2012 World silver medalist Helen Maroulis.

Calling the action will be play-by-play announcer Jason Knapp, with color commentary from Olympic champion Rulon Gardner, and sideline interviews by Chris Mannix. NBCSN will also air an encore presentation of the Beat The Streets Team USA vs. The World event on Thursday at 4 p.m. ET.
