Amateur wrestling action will finally return after a long gap as the Individual World Cup 2020 is set to take place in Belgrade, Serbia, from December 12th to 18th.

The United World Wrestling (UWW) had earlier decided to call off the Wrestling World Championships 2020 as many participating nations withdrew from the event because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Individual World Cup 2020 will have five world champions and a total of 26 medalists from last year's World Championships fighting for glory. The tournament will witness the wrestlers square off in all three categories - Freestyle, Greco-Roman, and Women's Wrestling.

As for the Indian contingent, the Tokyo Olympics-bound Deepak Punia and Ravi Kumar Dahiya will lead a 27-member Indian squad for the upcoming event. The Individual World Cup will also witness the return of Narsingh Yadav after a 4-year doping ban.
