RANTOUL -- You may not see wrestling in the Winter Games, but it's one of the most historically well-known in the Summer Games. Here, kids of all ages are learning about the sport.

The recreation department runs the Youth Wrestling Program. Kids in kindergarten through 8th grade can sign up.

7-year old Tallen Pawlek has been part of it for about two years. Last year, he only lost two matches in 38. This year, he's 20 - 2 so far. It's a sport he plans to continue for a long time.

Tallen says he loves wrestling because he likes to win trophies and medals. He's going to Chicago soon to compete in state. If he wins, he'll receive a belt.
