Wrestling: Quotas Lost Due to Meldonium Reinstated

After reviewing the meldonium guidelines outlined by the IOC and WADA the United World Wrestling has reinstated the disqualified quotas for nations. Specifically the quotas won by; Poland’s Magomedmurat Gadzhiev (men’s freestyle -65kg), Ukraine’s Andriy Kziatkovsky (men’s freestyle -65kg), Kyrgyzstan’s Yanarbek Kenzheev (men’s Greco-Roman -85kg), Mongolia’s Sumiya Erdenchimeg (women’s freestyle -53kg) and Ukraine’s Oksana Herhel (women’s freestyle -58kg).

Also while Ukraine’s Alen Zasieiev (men’s freestyle -125kg) was reinstated Ukraine did not gain a quota because the nation re-qualified at a later tournament. The UWW also announced that the nations which benefitted from the reallocation previously will get to keep their quotas.


Quotas by Nations

  • Ukraine – 2
  • Kyrgyzstan – 1
  • Mongolia – 1
  • Poland – 1
