The World Veterans Olympic Wrestling Championship and the World Grappling Championship have attracted the interest of the world and in the coming days around 1000 athletes will be in Greece to compete.
In the beautiful city of Loutraki, the heart of World Wrestling will beat and, as expected, the interest is particularly high. Two international events will bring to our country world champions and athletes who have given the sport great joy.
Great interest has been shown by the Greek wrestlers who have declared participation in both events. In total there will be 55 entries in the colors of the National Team, in all styles, with the aim of course of distinction and a place on the winners’ podium.
Let’s remember that on October 14-15 the World Grappling Championship will be held and from October 17 to 23, 2023 the World Veteran Olympic Wrestling Championship.
Both championships are held under the auspices of the Hellenic Wrestling Federation, with the cooperation of the sport’s World Federation.
The support is provided by the Municipality of Loutraki – Perachora – Agios Theodoros, while the implementing body is the Sportcamp sports center.
