Asian Wrestling Championship shifted from New Delhi to Astana | More sports News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The United World Wrestling on Thursday shifted the Asian Wrestling Championship from from New Delhi to Astana.
The tournament was supposed to be held in India from March 28 to April 2 but will now take place from April 7-15 in Kazakhstan.
UWW was forced to change the host of the continental championships due to the recent developments in Indian wrestling and a pending inquiry by the Indian sports ministry against the Wrestling Federation of India president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.
Apart from the senior competition, the U17 and U23 Asian Championships are set to return to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan for a second straight year. The tournament will take place from June 10 to 18.
Astana hosted the World Championships in 2019 with grand success and Kazakhstan was the host of the Asian Championships in 2021 as well. The city of Almaty also hosted the third Ranking Series event last year.
The dates of the U-15 and U-20 Asian Championships have been modified and it will now take place in Amman, Jordan from July 12 to 20.
