Olympics Wrestling

Olympics Wrestling

Wrestling had been contested at the Summer Olympic Games since the sport was introduced in the ancient Olympic Games in 708 BC. When the modern Olympic Games resumed in Athens in 1896, wrestling (in the form of Greco-Roman wrestling) became a focus of the Games, with the exception of the 1900 Summer Olympics when wrestling did not appear on the program. Freestyle wrestling and weight classes both made their first appearance in 1904. The women's competition was introduced in 2004. Wrestling at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo will feature two disciplines, freestyle and Greco-Roman, which will be further divided into different weight categories. Men will compete in both disciplines whereas women will only participate in the freestyle events, with 18 gold medals awarded.
