From the Cold War to the Miracle on Ice, the rivalry between the United States and Russia has spanned across several decades. The two countries added another chapter to their storied rivalry with the Grapple in the Apple wrestling event in Times Square. While the Russians entered the matchup as the world’s most dominant wrestling team, the Americans took care of business on their home soil for the second straight year. After defeating the Eastern Europeans 5-2 last year, the US Olympic freestyle team edged Team Russia 4-3 in Duffy Square last Thursday afternoon.
