Here's a look at the Summer 2021 Olympians with Nebraska ties.

Former Omaha Skutt wrestler Thomas Gilman will have a chance to compete for bronze in the freestyle men’s 57kg class at the Tokyo Olympics.

Gilman faced Russian opponent Zavur Uguev, the No. 2 seed, in his opener.

It was 1-all at the break. Gilman took a 4-3 lead in the final minute, but Uguev scored two in the final 10 seconds for the win. Uguev reached the final, meaning Gilman will be in repechage on Thursday.

Gilman needs two wins to claim bronze.
