14 spots will be on offer when the Indian grapplers take the mat at the Asian Olympic Qualifiers kicks-off in Almaty, Kazakhstan starting April 9. The Wrestling Federation of India conducted trials for both men and women last month in the country.

While all the six Greco-Roman spots (60kg, 67kg, 77kg, 87kg, 97kg, 130kg) are up for grabs, the Indian women will be competing in five weight categories (50kg, 57kg, 62kg, 68kg, 76kg). The only men’s freestyle spots that India will be competing in are 74kg, 97kg and 125kg.

So far, four Indian wrestlers have booked their tickets to the Tokyo Olympics. They are Ravi Kumar Dahiya (57kg), Bajrang Punia (65kg), Deepak Punia (86kg) and Vinesh Phogat (women’s 53kg).

In case, any wrestler fails to make the Tokyo Olympics cut from the Kazakhstan event, they will have a chance at the World qualifiers from May 6 to 9 in Bulgaria.
