Olympic Qualifying for ’24

The most important piece of stories to hit worldwide wrestling final week was UWW’s announcement that that they had permitted of recent qualifying procedures for the ’24 Paris Video games. As was the case with Tokyo, brackets for Paris will probably be restricted to simply 16 athletes, and continental qualifiers will stick with awarding licenses to the top-two finishers in every weight class, which is and has by and enormous been customary.

Essentially the most notable change that UWW has of their plans will arrive with the ’23 World Championships. Within the current previous, all athletes who participated in medal matches certified their respective weight classes on behalf of their nations. At subsequent yr’s Worlds (which at press time remains to be to be held in Krasnoyarsk, RUS), the 4 medal-winners from every weight class will qualify — however each wrestlers who fall of their bronze-medal bouts will compete for a fifth and closing qualifying spot.

As well as, three Olympic tickets will probably be up for grabs on the ’24 World qualifier (tentatively scheduled for Might 9-12, location TBD), with these wrestlers who earn bronze medals competing in a “true third” bout to find out the third Olympic license.

Dobrev Talks Bulgaria

Head Nationwide coach for Serbia — and as soon as upon a time a World bronze for his native Bulgaria — Stoyan Dobrev is coming off of a banner achievement. On the World Championships final month on his adopted residence turf, Dobrev watched as 4 Serbian athletes earned gold medals and helped their nation grow to be the speak of the event.

Underneath Dobrev’s management, which now encompasses 9 years, Serbia’s outcomes on the worldwide degree have been constant and noteworthy. 35 World-level medals have gone to SRB throughout Dobrev’s reign so far; and with the Balkan nation staking declare to what’s now a extra strong developmental system, it doesn’t seem that his work is anyplace close to completed.

However the 53-year-old coach’s coronary heart remains to be with Bulgaria, the place he additionally served as an assistant underneath head Bratan Tsenov. Very a lot so, actually. When talking to his former country’s official outlet, Dobrev didn’t intimate the will for a victory lap close to Serbia’s end within the ’22 World Workforce standings. Fairly, he felt conflicted. “This was one of the crucial tough moments for me, once I needed to stand within the nook in opposition to our (BUL’s) wrestlers,” mentioned Dobrev. “I’ve by no means felt good about that as a result of I’m Bulgarian and can stay so for the remainder of my life. Someday, ultimately, I do know that I’ll return to Bulgaria.”

Dobrev desires to see Bulgaria flourish, with or with out his involvement. However to ensure that that occur, he believes that the Bulgarian authorities wants to extend monetary efforts in a giant means for its athletes.

“In Serbia, sport is at the moment a state coverage,” started Dobrev. “The state offers 200 million Euros ($196,550,000 USD) for sports activities. So far as I do know in Bulgaria, it’s 40 million. The distinction is 5 occasions extra. In Serbia, for every European, World, and Olympic medal, the state offers nationwide recognition or a pension, which is a type of incentive for these younger guys who know that in the event that they attain some end result, equivalent to third within the European Championships, he has some safety in case one thing occurs. When he turns 38, he begins to obtain a pension for the remainder of his life. That is one thing that basically offers the entire thing that means.”

He then went on to additional illustrate areas of concern during which he sees Bulgarian athletes.

“You can not retire from the game as a World and European champion, as we’ve got now in Bulgaria, and never know the place to go, left or proper,” he mentioned. “And in actuality, you gave the most effective years of your life, you invested all of your power and all the things into your sport. Sadly, there is no such thing as a solution to change that. There aren’t any sports activities colleges right here (in Serbia), work is completed on an beginner foundation. However there’s help, and that is due to the angle of the state. Hopefully, it will occur in Bulgaria, as a result of lots of our wrestler mates are at the moment in a really unhealthy situation. Not simply wrestlers, however all athletes, and I’m most sickened by this factor. I can not say that Serbia has larger alternatives than us. On this, I can not agree. There are 6.5 million individuals in Serbia and Bulgaria that many. How come they will spend a lot cash and a focus on their athletes and we will’t?”
