As for Greco-Roman, Hossein Nouri, Mohammad Hadi Saravi and Behrouz Hazratipour will participate.
United World Wrestling (UWW) had replaced the world championship with the Individual World Cup after failing to fulfill the criteria it had set in June during an executive meeting.
The competition will feature all the 10 weight classes from Greco-Roman, Freestyle and Women’s wrestling. Furthermore, just like the worlds, each country will be eligible to pitch one wrestler per category. The total prize money is 300,000 Swiss Francs and will be awarded to the top 3 players in each class.USA, Japan and Cuba had withdrawn from the Individual World Cup citing COVID-19 concerns.

According to Japan wrestling federation, UWW will continue to monitor the situation and might cancel the competition altogether if conditions worsen. Moreover, the participation fee, which is usually 11 Swiss Francs, has been waived off. UWW has also reduced the accommodation expenses for the participants.
