In addition to the medals and championships on the line at the World Championships in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan last week, there was also more on the line. The tournament served as the first qualifier for the 2020 Olympics. The six wrestlers that finished in the top five at each Olympic weight reserved a spot in the games for their respective country. Remember there are only six Olympic weights in each style, so only placements in those weights are considered. It’s also important to emphasize that this just means that a country has earned a spot in the Olympic, not the individual wrestler. Each nation has it’s own criteria for picking their team, so while we may see most of the competitors that were in action this week at the Olympics, it doesn’t guarantee their entry. 

For those that need to qualify their weights, there will be continental qualifiers held in the spring (At this time there are no dates set). The top two wrestlers at each weight, in each continental qualifier, will earn a trip to the Olympics. After those tournaments are conducted, there will be one more tournament for any country looking to qualify. There only the champion of that tournament will go to Tokyo.

Below is a table with the countries that qualified their weight classes in Kazakhstan.
