Olympic champions Jordan Burroughs, Kyle Snyder and Helen Maroulis lead Team USA at the world wrestling championships, with live coverage on Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA beginning Sunday from Budapest.

Burroughs, Snyder and Maroulis earned the three American golds at last year’s worlds, all repeating as world champs. For Burroughs, it was redemption after a shocking exit before the medal matches in Rio. Snyder and Maroulis had each taken gold at their first Olympics in Rio.

This year, the 2012 Olympic champ Burroughs can grab a share of the record he has for so long coveted — John Smith‘s six combined Olympic and world titles, most by an American — in the first day of finals Sunday.

Snyder and Maroulis are also wrestling for history.

Snyder, the youngest U.S. Olympic and world champion in wrestling, could once again face The Russian Tank — Abdulrashid Sadulayev — in the 97kg final Tuesday (or earlier in the bracket, pending the random draw). Snyder won the showdown at last year’s worlds, clinching the U.S.’ first men’s freestyle team title since 1995 in what was dubbed the Match of the Century.

Maroulis can tie Tricia Saunders for the U.S. female record of four combined Olympic and world titles with a gold on Thursday. All of Saunders’ golds came at worlds, since she competed before women’s wrestling debuted on the Olympic program in 2004.
