The event will be held November 16-17 at the Nakadai Sports & Recreation Park Gymnasium in Narita. The Women’s Wrestling World Cup will be held 40km from Makuhari Messe, wrestling’s venue for the 2020 Games.
Unfortunately, Indian women team will miss the event as they failed to qualify for the World Cup, unlike their male counterparts.
