This Thursday, June 7th, at the Duffy Square section of Times Square in NYC, Beat the Streets will host their 2012 Gala – The Grapple in the Big Apple! For the past few years, fans who attend this event walk away saying that it will be impossible for the BTS organizers to “top” what they just watched…..each year, they have been wrong! This year’s event is no exception.
The 2012 Beat the Streets Gala will feature an exciting freestyle dual meet between the US and Russia, an Olympic team wrestle-off at 60kg, exhibition matches including one with 3X NCAA champion and NY native Kyle Dake, and an Awards and Reception Banquet at the famed Roseland Ballroom.
