BQualified athletes are apparently supposed to keep their places for the Olympic Summer Games in Tokyo, which were scheduled for 2021. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the sports associations made this decision in a conference call on Thursday, according to the AFP news agency, citing matching sources.

This message is very important for more than 6000 athletes. Around 57 percent of the planned 11,000 seats for the games were already allocated to qualified athletes on Tuesday, when the IOC announced the postponement due to the corona pandemic.

New qualifications would be torment for many

For many athletes, the definition would be extremely important. The three-time wrestling world champion Frank Stäbler, for example, in an interview with the F.A.Z. Week insistently that qualifications are retained. In wrestling, qualification is associated with special torments for many athletes, as they often have to switch to a lower weight class for the Olympics, since two regular weight classes are dropped due to the reduction in the number of participants at the Olympics.

As a 72-kilogram wrestler, Stäbler is affected, so he has to lose nine kilograms of weight. “In the pre-Olympic year, we need to massively reduce weight in some weight classes. It’s the same with me. I have to do it again for the Olympics. It would be difficult for me to imagine passing another qualification pass with this agony ”.
