Since it became an Olympic event, there has obviously been a big increase in the youngsters taking part. Since then we’ve started to hear a lot more from children wanting to wrestle at the Olympics Compared to having only four categories, moving up to six means that more people can experience… the Olympics, and that’s something I’m really pleased about. The fact that there are more opportunities to go to the games… will encourage more competitors to try and get there. It’s obviously a really great thing that the number of people in Women’s Wrestling… has gone up and that the number of categories is the same as the men. I think that we’re going to have to work even harder.

  1. Is it really true that in the 2020 Olympic games they are removing wrestling? Because if so I'm going to be really sad 🙁

  2. The woman's wrestling matches are always far better to watch than the men's, women are far more aggressive and there's a lot more action. It's unfortunate only Canada and Japan really kept their teams going after the IOC considered dropping wrestling from the Olympics.

  3. The womens freestyle finals were some of the best wreslting i've ever seen. So glad they didn't remove wrestling from the olympics

  4. I hate padda-cake. So I don't wrestle to win, I do it to flip and fly and scramble. Like Maroulis. She wins though.
