Paris 2024 Olympics Women's Wrestling Entries

By United World Wrestling Press

PARIS (July 10) -- Women's Wrestling in Paris will see only one returning Olympic champion in Yui SUSAKI (JPN). Five new Olympic champions are set to be crowned as 96 wrestlers compete in six weight classes over a week at the Paris Olympics. Wrestling will be held from August 5 to 11 with Women's Wrestling scheduled each day.

Susaki won the gold medal at 50kg in Tokyo and is looking to defend that. Japan, which won four golds out of six in Tokyo, will hope to clean sweep in Paris with world champions Akari FUJINAMI (JPN), Tsugumi SAKURAI (JPN) and Yuka KAGAMI (JPN) entered. Nonoka OZAKI (JPN), a world champion at 62kg and 65kg, is going up to 68kg for Paris. At 62kg, Sakura MOTOKI (JPN) is a silver medalist from the World Championships.

The United States and Mongolia joined Japan as the only other teams to qualify all six weight classes for Paris. India, Nigeria, Turkiye and China managed to qualify five.

Two-time world 72kg champion Amit ELOR (USA) is down at 68kg in a bid to complete the slam of winning world titles and the Olympic gold. Only Susaki has achieved this feat when she won the U23 world title in 2022. Helen MAROULIS (USA), Rio 2016 champion and bronze medalist in Tokyo, is coming for her third medal.

Four-time Olympic medalist Mariya STADNIK (AZE) is going for her fifth medal, a feat no one has achieved in wrestling before. Kaori ICHO (JPN) has four medals, all golds. In total, 10 Olympic medalists are entered in the field of 96 wrestlers.

Paris 2024 will also mark the first time Algeria, Lithuania, New Zealand and Uzbekistan will send a woman wrestler to the Olympics.
