We would like to remind that
one of the most important things were distinguished this championship from others were amendments making in competition rules and being tested here. So, as of next year at continental and world championships it’s intended to extend competitions day on weighting categories from one to two days. So, according to the program preliminary bouts (including semifinal meetings) will be held in the first day and repechage and medal bouts will take place next competition day. Sportsmen in both competition days will be attracted to weighing process. Despite in first competition day sportsmen will wrestle in their weighting category in the second day they will be allowed to wrestle in 2 kg more weighting category.
