Overview Wrestling

Wrestling was a feature of the ancient Olympic Games in 708 BC, with the sport's Greco-Roman style included in the first Games of the modern era at Athens 1896. Eight years later, freestyle wrestling was introduced at the St Louis 1904 Games. Women's freestyle wrestling joined the Olympic programme at Athens in 2004.

The essence of both styles is the same: with no equipment and no grasping at clothing, two athletes try to press both shoulders of their opponent down onto the mat. Greco-Roman wrestlers use only their upper bodies and arms while freestyle wrestlers can use any part of their body.

The competition programme at Rio 2016 included six classes, based on weight, for each of men's Greco-Roman, men's freestyle and women's freestyle. For all events, there is a direct elimination system that eventually decides the two finalists for the gold medal match. All wrestlers who lose against either finalist, at any stage of the competition up to and including the semi-finals, enter the repechage.
