WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) Olympic dreams on the line for a couple of local wrestlers, Ben Provisor of Stevens Point and Alyssa Lampe from Tomahawk.

The U.S. Olympic trials are this weekend in Iowa City, Iowa. That's where Provisor and Lampe hope to punch their ticket to the Summer Olympic Games in Rio

Provisor will be competing in Greco-Roman at 85 kilos. The SPASH grad was part of the Olympic team in London in 2012, made it to the second round and finished 11th.

Lampe is wrestling at 48 kilos in women's freestyle. The Tomahawk grad lost in the finals of the 2012 U.S. trials, she's the top-ranked American and has won the world team trials the last three years.
