UWW mulls over renewing wrestling season from August

By   - 21/05/2020

The United World Wrestling (UWW) is considering three options for restarting the season, revealed Belcho Goranov, secretary-general of the Bulgarian Olympic Committee and member of the UWW Legal Commission.

The world governing body is most optimistic to resume at the end of August, and most pessimistic after the New Year. There are opportunities for competitions to start in late autumn, but which option will be preferred depends on the epidemiological situation with the coronavirus around the world. The UWW Executive Committee will meet on June 30, reported Bulgaria Wrestling Federation media centre.
