The 1900 Games were the only ones where wrestling was not present in any shape or form. As from the 1908 Olympic Games in London, Greco-Roman wrestling has always been included on the programme. Since the 1920 Antwerp Games, there have been both freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling competitions.

  1. Аварец поднял наш в флаг в Лондоне и заработал золотую олимпийскую медаль. Спасибо вам аварцы, за такого достойного сына. Не стоит ссорится и реагировать на провокации некоторых комментаторов

  2. You got to give the peurto rican credit. He was wrestling with hunger and taking chances because the other guy was playing safe and stalling…asmarter game but his wrestling isboring.

  3. Azerbaijan won two gold in men's freestyle and 7 medals in all at the London Olympics. Azerbaijan placed 4th over all. Amazing for a country of 9.5 million people!
