The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has reached a historic decision regarding wrestling at the 125th session held in Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina.

The IOC abandoned the decision to exclude wrestling from the 2020 Summer Olympics program, made in February this year. Thus, wrestling will be included in the program of the 32nd Summer Olympics to be held in Tokyo, capital of Japan, in 7 years’ time.

We would like to remind that besides wrestling, baseball/softball and squash were also competing to remain in the summer Olympics. However, according to the results of voting among IOC members, wrestling scored the highest votes (49), leaving baseball/softball (24) and squash (22) behind.
