By Eric Olanowski

MINSK, Belarus (July 19) --- The regular season closes out next week with the final Greco-Roman Ranking Series event, the Oleg Karavaev. The two-day tournament, which will be held in Minsk, Belarus, will feature nearly 175 wrestlers from 19 different nations.

Emrah KUS (TUR), the reigning world runner-up and No. 1-ranked wrestler in the world at 82kg, leads a field littered with 24 wrestlers who are ranked inside the top-20 of the latest Greco-Roman rankings. Kus' weight of 82kg will feature six ranked wrestlers -- which is the most top-20 guys in one bracket.

Two other stacked weight classes to pay attention to are 67kg and 130kg. Both weights house at least four top-20 competitors.

Wrestling at the Palace of Sports begins on July 26 and can be followed live on www.unitedworldwrestling.org.

Executive Committee Announces Cancelation of Upcoming Events

By United World Wrestling Press

 

CORSIER-SUR-VEVEY, Switzerland (August 5) -- The United World Wrestling executive committee (EC) held a virtual meeting today to review the impact of COVID-19 on the future of the Cadet and Junior European Championships.

Due to the ongoing pandemic the EC voted to cancel all events planned for September and October, including the European Cadet Championship scheduled for 5-11 October in Poland and the European Junior Championship planned on 19-25 October 2020 in North Macedonia.

"We will continue to monitor the worldwide response to the pandemic," said United World Wrestling president Nenad Lalovic. "We take seriously the responsibility to care for our athletes safety and health. When we have confidence they can compete with success we will wrestle again."

The EC will meet in the next month to further discuss the 2020 calendar and analyze next steps.
