Athletes

Athletes are the heart and soul of the sport of wrestling. We thrive to provide support to athletes together with Olympic Solidarity, International Olympic Committee, National Wrestling Federations, Continental Councils and National Olympic Committees

 

Currently two types of programs centred on athlete’s development are available: 1) programs and funding assisting in wrestling high performance/development, and 2) post athletic career transition projects
