    Sporting activity in wrestlers operated on for spondylolisthesis is not well documented in the literature. We present the case of a wrestler with a grade I L5-S1 spondylolisthesis who was L4-S1 arthrodesed due to pain not relieved by conservative methods. One year after surgery he had returned to full wrestling activity, including competitions. Two years later, he continues to wrestle at the same level of competition.
