TNA Wrestling Superstar Kurt Angle noted on Twitter this week that he will be heading to Iowa City, Iowa to take part in the U.S. Olympic wresting trials that will determine the team that will be heading to London for the 2012 Olympics next year.

“I’m Already Qualified for final Olympic trials In June. But I Will Official Enter Olympic trial Qualifier Tourney in April in Iowa! I’m Ready,” Angle wrote on Twitter.

Back in June of this year, Angle officially announced he would be trying out for the Olympics in an interview with The Sun. At the time, he said the following, “I’ve set my sights on this. There are certain goals I had in my life and I’ve done them. I won an Olympic gold medal, but last time I did it I didn’t really enjoy it. I didn’t have fun. It was more of a job and there was a lot of pressure on me. This time I’m going to soak it in, enjoy everything I do from the training to going to London and making the Olympic team, enjoying it and remembering the Olympics instead of putting it out of my mind.”
