A little history of of the sport
Wrestling for sport is almost as old as the human civilization. As a competitive sport, it has been contested at the ancient Olympic Games in 708 BC. When the modern Olympics resumed in Athens in 1896, wrestling became a focus of the Games. Since 1900, it has been an integral part of the Olympics. India has a rich tradition in wrestling too. Since time immemorial it was a popular sport among people in the villages, with ‘Dangals’ organized in sand ‘akharas’. After the bout the winner would go around the crowd and people would offer him cash as reward for his victory.
