The World Wrestling Union (WWU) has announced a new calendar of world and European championships scheduled for the end of the year.
Axar.az informs that, the European Junior Championship is scheduled for October 5-11 in Poland (the city is unknown), the European Youth Championship for October 19-25 in Skopje, Northern Macedonia, and the U-23 World Championship for November 23-29 in Tampere, Finland. If it is not possible to organize the world championship of wrestlers under 23, the continental championship for this age group will be held on those dates.
Given the current situation, UWW considers it expedient to hold the World Cup among youth and adults in the same venue. According to the plan, the World Youth Championship will be held on December 4-10, and a similar competition among adults will be held on December 12-20 in Belgrade, Serbia.
However, there are certain conditions for holding these competitions on the specified dates and venues. The participation of at least 8 of the top 10 teams in the world and 70% of the countries is important.
The UWW has stated that it will continue to work closely with the World Security Organization and the International Olympic Committee's Department of Medicine, and will build its competition activities accordingly. The next online meeting of the UWW Executive Committee will be held in August. The calendar of competitions will be approved at the event.
