The 2023 senior Asian Championship will be held in New Delhi from March 28 to April 2, announced the United World Wrestling (UWW) which has also allowed a two-kilogram weight tolerance for wrestlers at Ranking Series events from the next year.
The Asian Championship will be held in New Delhi for the second time in three years. The Indian capital hosted the tournament in February 2020.
The 2kg weight tolerance was approved by the UWW Bureau on Monday when it met to finalise the calendar for 2023.
“The two-kilogram weight tolerance was also put forward to the Bureau and it was readily accepted. The move will promote wrestler to compete in their preferred weight class instead of an upper weight classes in future Ranking Series events,” according to the United World Wrestling (UWW) website.
