The U-23 World Wrestling Championships 2022 commenced on 17th October and will go on till 23rd October. The tournament is taking place in Pontevedra, Spain.

Preview

The competition isn't very old. It started back in 2017 when the first edition was held in Bydgoszcz in Poland. The championships happen every year and thereby provides the U-23 wrestlers a good platform to make that jump into the senior squad. However, the 2020 edition was cancelled due to the pandemic.

The Russians and Japanese grapplers have dominated the event since its inception. In the Men's Freestyle, Russia has been the champion in all editions so far whereas Japan dominated the Women's Freestyle for the first three years.

In the overall medal tally, Japan leads Russia in the account of gold medals. The Asian country has 25 whereas the European has 17.

India on the other hand is yet to taste gold in the event but has clinched seven silver and four bronze medals so far.
