Team USA's Coleman Scott, Tervel Ivaylov Dlagnev Will Compete For Wrestling Bronze

Three different United States wrestlers were in competition on Saturday at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. While one of those competitors failed to reach the semifinals, the other two will have a chance to pick up the bronze.

In the men's 60kg freestyle event, Coleman Scott defeated Georgia's Malkhaz Zarkua to reach the semifinals, but was defeated by Toghrul Asgarov of Azerbaijan, 3-0. Scott will now wrestle the winner of the match between Germany's Tim Schleicher and Japan's Kenichi Yumoto for the bronze medal. That match will take place at 12:45 p.m. ET, according to Chris Dugan of the Observer-Reporter.

In the men's 84kg freestyle event, Jake Herbert was unable to make it past Sharif Sharifov in the quarterfinals, as another wrestler from Azerbaijan defeated a U.S. competitor. Depending on how the rest of the bracket shakes out, Herbert may have a chance to enter the repechage and compete for the bronze.

Finally, in the men's 120kg freestyle, U.S. wrestler Tervel Ilvayov Dlagnev lost his semifinal match to Artur Taymazov of Uzbekistan. He will get a chance to wrestle for the bronze medal as well and will face the winner of the match between Georgia's Nick Matuhin and Komeil Ghasemi of Iran.
