MOSCOW, Russia -- University of Iowa Assistant Wrestling Coach Mike Zadick and former Hawkeye wrestler Brent Metcalf are ready to take the international stage at the 2010 World Championships in Moscow, Russia. Zadick and Metcalf, who are members of the United States Men's Freestyle World Team, will compete Saturday and Sunday. The seven-day event, which also features women's freestyle and men's Greco-Roman events, started Monday.

Hawkeye Associate Head Wrestling Coach Terry Brands and former Hawkeye NCAA champion Bill Zadick are also at the Olympiysky Sports Complex as members of the men's freestyle coaching staff.

Mike Zadick, who won a silver medal at the 2006 World Championships, is making his third World Championships appearance. Wrestling at 60 kilograms, Zadick will weigh in at 9:30 a.m. (CT) Friday. His competition will take place from 4-10 a.m. Saturday, with the finals and medal matches being contested from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. A three-time all-American at Iowa (2000-02), Zadick is in his first season as Iowa's interim assistant coach after serving as the team's volunteer assistant coach for four seasons (2004-06, 2009-10) and the strength training coach for three seasons (2006-08).

Metcalf, who is making his first-ever appearance at the World Championships, will be competing at 66 kilograms. He is scheduled to weigh in at 9:30 a.m. (CT) Saturday. His competition will take place the same times as Zadick on Sunday. Metcalf was a three-time all-American and NCAA finalist for the Hawkeyes (2008-10), winning two NCAA and Big Ten titles.
