Japan will so skip the 2020 World Championships

https://www.khabarvarzeshi.com/news/280116/انصراف-میزبان-المپیک-از-حضور-در-جهانی-صربستان

I predict they will canel these games altogether in the next two weeks.

With the pandemic peaking in Europe, and two of the top nations announcing they are not participating, the odds of cancelling the games are very high.

Iran is fighting for tickets to the World Championship

30.10.2020 | In the world

The main sporting event these days in Iran was the qualifying bouts for the right to participate in the World Wrestling Championship.

When proposals to change the 2020 calendar were discussed at the UWW executive committee in June, Iran was against the inclusion of the World Championship. However, then, faced with the intransigence of the UWW leadership, which intends, by all means, to hold these competitions, the Iranians, unlike the Americans, agreed to delegate their teams to Belgrade, where the wrestling world championship is planned to be held in the second week of December. 

Once Iranian wrestling federation agreed, they needed to prepare, and at the beginning of October, the Iranian freestyle wrestling team returned to training after more than a half-year pause, despite the fact that the situation in the country with the coronavirus not only did not improve, but significantly worsened, as evidenced by record numbers infected and dead. 

After a two-week training camp in Tehran, the selection for the national team began there. Amir Mohammad Yazdani (65 kg), Ali Sawadkuhi (79 kg) and the bronze medalist of the 2016 World Championship in the weight category up to 70 kg Mostaf Hosseinhani (74 kg) won trips to Belgrade in three categories. 

Initially, the national team's coaching council planned to name the participants of the world championship in the remaining seven categories, but then reconsidered its decision, appointing qualifying bouts in these weights. With the exception of the injured 2019 World Cup finalist in the 92kg category, Alireza Karimi, and the two-time light heavyweight champion Reza Yazdani, who said that he was only interested in the Olympic Games now, all the leading Iranian freestyle wrestlers will take part in the qualifying mini-tournaments. Among them are Olympic champion Hasan Yazdani (86 kg), world championship winners Mohammad Mohammadian (97 kg), Parviz Hadi (125 kg), Behnam Eksanpur (61 kg), Younes Emami (70 kg), winners of the U-23 world championships Mojtaba Golage (97 kg) and Amir Hossein Zare (125 kg).

Qualifying bouts in the remaining seven categories will be held on November 5 with empty stands at the main indoor arena of Iran - Azadi. Video and TV broadcasts will be conducted from the Sports Palace.

The US should not go if we do not send our top guys  JMO

There have been two USAW events the last Calendar year.

By the logic that results prove who the best is, then the team is likely:

Lee, Oliver, Massa, Valencia, Moore, Parris.

That I do not agree with.  If USAW decides not to participate strictly due to deciding that it is to risky to our delegation to attend, that is somewhat disappointing to me but both understandable and acceptable.  As far as who goes if some or all of the top guys do not want to go for whatever reasons there are plenty of very capable guys on the ladder who can be given an opportunity to compete at a World Championship.

The World Championship will be replaced by the World Cup

10.11.2020 | In the world

The United Wrestling World (UWW) has decided to change the format of the World Wrestling Championship in Belgrade to an individual World Cup.

TASS was informed about this by the President of the Russian Wrestling Federation, Vice-President of UWW Mikhail Mamiashvili.

The meeting of the UWW bureau with the participation of the president of the organization of Serb, Nenad Lalovic, took place on Tuesday in the online format. The World Cup will take place from 12 to 20 December.

“We will hold an individual World Cup, the terms of the tournament are the same, the country is the same. Many countries refused - there are not enough participating countries. The main condition for the holding of the World Championship was the participation of a certain number of countries that participated in the last year's World Championship, but Oceania, Latin American countries, a large number of countries where communications are closed, refused,” Mamiashvili said.
