* Wrestling at Tokyo 2020 will feature three competitions, with 96 men in each style and 96 women. * Men and women compete in a freestyle wrestling tournament, and there will be a men's-only Greco-Roman event. * The three competitions will be further divided into six different weight categories.
Ten gold medals are there for the taking in five events for men, four for women and one mixed event. Britain is traditionally the sport's strongest nation at the Olympics, with the United States, Norway, Spain and France also regularly on the podium.

Uruguay did not get a shot on target in their opening 1-0 loss to Argentina, while Chile scraped a draw with Argentina then laboured to beat Bolivia 1-0.

The Tokyo Tower and other landmarks were lit in special Olympic colours in April to mark 100 days before the Summer Games opened, but were shrouded in clouds of mist when rain enveloped the Japanese capital that night.
