Wrestling

Wrestling is one of the most ancient sports. Nowadays, competitions and championships in three wrestling styles, namely freestyle, Greco-Roman and female wrestling are held. The Greco-Roman wrestling called classic wrestling is the most ancient wrestling and its first examples date back to the 6th-4th centuries B.C. The freestyle wrestling is also called English wrestling and though it originated in England in the 18th century, it became widely popular in America in the 19th century. The female wrestling that is the youngest among these styles, came into existence in the late 20th century and was for the first time included in the program of the Summer Olympic Games held in Athens in 2004.
