Wrestling has been part of the Olympics right from 1896 modern games and have been making tremendous strides since then

Preview

The excitement surrounding the 28th edition of wrestling at Olympics is much higher than the previous editions because of some of the wrestlers coming from densely populated countries like India & China and also for the success host nation Japan had in last Olympics in which they won 7 medals including 4 gold and that makes them hot favourites this time too.

Coming to India at Tokyo Olympics, a total of seven wrestlers will be in action when they step up to centre stage of Tokyo Olympics, including three men and four women. This time around, all eyes will be on Bajrang Punia (men's freestyle 65kg) and Vinesh Phogat (women's freestyle 63kg), who with streak of impressive performances, have emerged as the biggest medal hopes for the country.
