The IOC/FILA (World Wrestling body) Qualification criteria for the Beijing Olympics 2008 has been released. Interestingly, changes to the criteria give Australian athletes a greater chance to qualify for the Olympics.

The revised criteria are a combination of direct qualification through the 2007 World Championships and subsequent qualifying events and the allocation of 7 places (sex not specified) for Oceania athletes through the 2008 Oceania Championships.

This is a tremendous incentive for Australian & Oceania Wrestlers.

Regards, Chris Shen

Please run that by me again...... I dunno if I fully understand that.
