Why aren't there captions on all of the photos?
This site is run by 2 amateurs: an amateur photographer and an amateur
web designer. When only one photographer is photographing a major
event, it is very difficult to take note of the wrestlers' names for
several reasons: The photographer is shooting over a thousand images
per event and often has to sprint from mat to mat to cover many matches
that are occurring at the same time. The webmaster is a female wrester
who competes in many major senior freestyle events so captioning the
senior women and senior men is simpler, but with the younger age groups
we are often unable to identify all the participants. PLEASE HELP
US TO CAPTION THE PHOTOS!!! If you can identify any of the wrestlers
in the images, email firstname.lastname@example.org
and tell us the exact URL on which the photo appears, the wrestler's
name(s), and which photo(s) he or she is in (for example, 2nd row,
3rd column). Thanks for your help!

Why aren't there photos from more events?
We just started this website in the spring of 2002, so there are very
few events covered that are prior to this date. Since this website
is maintained as a hobby by 2 amateurs, we travel to events on our
own budget and for the love of the sport and photography, so covering
international events that are held overseas as well as smaller events
in remote areas all over the US are in most cases is very difficult.
We will try to cover most of the events on the USA wrestling national
and regional schedule and select major folkstyle events. If there
is an opportunity we may be able to cover an event outside the USA.
Why does it take so long to update the sites with photos from all
This site is maintained as a hobby by two amateurs with full time
day jobs that do not relate to this website and we are committed to
other activities. The photos require a lot of processing before they
are ready to post on the website and this takes a lot of time. We
will do our best to get the photos to you as quickly as we can. (in
our free time, but often we are out of town on business, moving, or
training hard/competing in wrestling tournaments so)[Delete] We can't
always get the photos out as fast as we would like to.
are some photos from a single bout not all grouped together?
Often there are several matches at a big event occur similtaneously
on different mats. The photographer tries his best to take photos
of the action on all the mats and the photo galleries display the
photos in the order of the time the photo was taken. Therefore, sometimes
photos from several different matches are all mixed in, but usually
photos from a single match are within a page or two.
