    UWW Reallocates Eight More Olympic Quotas

    CORSIER-SUR-VEVEY, Switzerland (July 9) -- A week after 16 Paris 2024 quotas were reallocated in wrestling, United World Wrestling has further reallocated eight quotas on Monday. This comes after eight Individual Neutral Athletes decided to withdraw their names before the July 8 entry deadline for the Games.

    Only one kept the quota -- at 65kg in Freestyle. This takes the number of AINs participating in Paris 2024 to two.

    Last week, UWW had reallocated 16 quotas, a decision taken after the International Olympic Committee released a list of eligible athletes in the first group of sports that have finished their qualifying process for the Olympic Games Paris 2024. The IOC had approved 16 out of the 26 Individual Neutral Athletes who won the Paris Olympic spots in various qualifying tournaments of UWW. However, six wrestlers did not accept the invitation to Paris 2024 despite being deemed eligible by the IOC.

    The 16 reallocations were carried out by UWW to the next highest-ranked eligible NOC, not yet qualified, at the event at which the quota place was obtained, respecting the maximum quota per gender and per NOC. The same process was followed for the new reallocation of eight quotas.
