The Wrestling competition at the 2012 Games will include 344 athletes. Each competing nation will be allowed to enter a maximum of 18 competitors (1 per event).[1]

3 places were reserved for Great Britain as host nation, but Great Britain decided to use only one of them[2] and a further 3 invitational places shall be decided by the Tripartite Commission. The remaining 338 places shall be allocated through a qualification process, in which athletes win quota places for their respective nation. For each place obtained by the host country in the qualification phase, one of these three reserved places will be allocated to the Tripartite Commission.[1]
