About World Wrestling Championships

The World Wrestling Championships, organized by the United World Wrestling (UWW), comprise the Greco-Roman Wrestling category (for men since 1904) and the Freestyle Wrestling division (established for men in 1951 and for women in 1987). UWW, formerly known as FILA (Fédération Internationale des Luttes Associées), adopted its current name UWW in September 2014. UWW serves as the international governing body for amateur wrestling.

Greco-Roman Wrestling:

Greco-Roman wrestling is a style of wrestling practiced in Olympic and international competitions. This style strictly prohibits the use of legs to secure a fall and restricts grabbing the opponent below the waist.

Freestyle Wrestling:

Freestyle wrestling, which combines techniques from traditional wrestling, judo, and sambo, originates from catch wrestling. In this style, the main objective is to quickly throw and pin the opponent to win, and unlike Greco-Roman wrestling, the use of legs is allowed for offense and defense.
