Wrestling Repechage system explained
Wrestling Repechage system
-> In the above diagram, assume 1 and 16 made it to the finals.
-> Those who lost to 1 and 16 are ( 2,3,5 and 15,13,9 ) respectively have been circled, and they will compete separately for the bronze.
-> So all the red circled players will compete separately for a bronze and all the blue circled players will compete for another bronze.
-> The bronze competitors will fight in this manner: 2 and 3 will play a match; if 2 wins, he will play with 5. Whoever wins the match between 2 and 5, wins the bronze. Similarly, 15 and 13 will play a match; if 15 wins, he will play with 9. Whoever wins the match between 15 and 9 wins the second bronze.
