Tuesday, April 28, 2020 - 14:32 By United World Wrestling Press
The International Olympic Committee Executive Committee just approved the Wrestling Qualification System for Tokyo 2020. United World Wrestling is one of the first International Federations that updated its Qualification System for Tokyo 2020.
The main principles and rules will remain the same. As mentioned earlier to all the National Wrestling Federations, Morocco, Hungary and China will keep the organization of the Continental Qualifiers and Bulgaria will organize the World Qualification.
We are very happy to be able to announce the next steps towards the Olympic Games for all the athletes. They will have clear understanding of the qualification process and be able to adjust their preparation to achieve their goal – be qualified for the Games.
The main change in that document is the eligibility to attend the Olympic Games. The athletes who will turn 18 years old (2003) in 2021 will be allowed to compete in the Qualifiers and in the Olympic Games.
You will be able to find the complete Qualification System on our Website - https://unitedworldwrestling.org/sites/default/files/2020-04/200428_final_qs_wrestling.pdf
