US Olympic Wrestling Team 2012: Grading Individual Performances in London
Michael Madrid-USA TODAY

The London Olympics are coming to their conclusion tonight, but Sunday's action did bring sports fans some last-minute Olympic action. One of the premier sports of Day 16 was men's wrestling. Today, wrestling champions were determined in the men's freestyle 66 kg and the men's freestyle 96 kg.

All in all the United States made out pretty well in these Olympics with two gold medalists and two bronze medalists. The two gold medals made it the first games since 1996 that the American team had multiple gold medalists in men's wrestling.

Obviously some stars like Jordan Burroughs and Jake Varner are very pleased with their Olympics, as they picked up gold medals. Still, expectation needs to be factored in as some wrestlers have nothing to be ashamed of, despite not winning the gold medal.

On the other hand, some favorites fell flat and should be disappointed with their Olympic experience. 

Here are my grades for some of the more notable U.S. wrestlers at this year's Olympics.
