Cuba to participate with 12 athletes in World Wrestling Championships

Havana, Aug 26 (Prensa Latina) Cuba will take part with 12 athletes (four in Greco-Roman, five in freestyle, and three women) in the World Wrestling Championships to be held in Belgrade from September 10-18, 2022.

Luis Orta, who won the title in the 60-kilogram division at the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020, heads the Greco-Roman team. He will fight this time in the top category of 63 kg, according to information published on the digital publication Jit.

He will be accompanied by Kevin de Armas (60 kg), Yosvani Peña (77 kg), and Juan Luis Conde (97 kg), while Oscar Pino (130 kg) and Daniel Gregorich (87 kg) will be absent from the event in the Serbian capital.

Both athletes are recovering from dengue fever, while star athlete Gabriel Rosillo (97 kg), who is recovering from knee surgery, will not be able to attend the universal event either.

Four-time Olympic champion Mijain Lopez is part of the delegation as a guest and will take advantage of his stay in Europe to train and watch the performances of potential rivals.

The World Wrestling Championships in Belgrade will host 30 divisions, 10 in each style and the rosters of several countries are already known, which suggest a strong rivalry for the medals.
