Notes[edit]

  • a b Poland's Magomedmurad Gadzhiev and Ukraine's Andriy Kvyatkovskyi initially secured quota places for their respective countries in men's freestyle 65 kg at the European Qualification Tournament, but have had their results nullified and associate Olympic licenses revoked due to doping violations for meldonium. As a result, the Olympic licenses were redistributed to Georgia and Armenia.[3]
  • c d Georgia (Zurabi Iakobishvili) initially secured a quota place in men's freestyle 65 kg at the first World Olympic Qualifier. Following the adjustment of Olympic qualifying nations as a response to doping violations, the nation's license was transferred to Bulgaria. Moreover, the unused license won by Bulgaria at the final World Olympic Qualifier was awarded to the United States.[3][4]
  • e Egypt (Aly Hamdy) originally earned a quota place in men's freestyle 97 kg at the African & Oceania Qualification Tournament, but have had its results nullified and associate Olympic license revoked for failing the doping test. The Olympic license was transferred to Guinea-Bissau.[3]
  • f g Belarus' Yusup Jalilau and Ukraine's Alen Zasyeyev initially secured quota places for their respective countries in the men's freestyle 125 kg at the European Qualification Tournament, but have had their results nullified and associate Olympic licenses revoked due to doping violations for meldonium. As a result, the Olympic licenses were redistributed to Bulgaria and Hungary.[3]
  • h Hungary (Dániel Ligeti) initially secured a quota place in men's freestyle 125 kg at the first World Olympic Qualifier. Following the adjustment of Olympic qualifying nations as a response to doping violations, the nation's license would have been awarded to Bulgaria (Lyuben Iliev), but the country also earned the quota at the European Qualifier. Instead, Kyrgyzstan (Aiaal Lazarev), who finished in third, took the unused berth won by Hungary in the same tournament.[3]
  • i Kyrgyzstan's Janarbek Kenjeev originally earned a quota place in men's Greco-Roman 85 kg at the Asian Qualification Tournament, but tested positive for doping, giving his nation's Olympic license to India.[3]
  • j Mongolia's Erdenechimegiin Sumiyaa originally earned a quota place in women's freestyle 53 kg at the Asian Qualification Tournament, but tested positive for doping, giving her nation's Olympic license to India.[3]
  • k Ukraine's Oksana Herhel originally earned a quota place in women's freestyle 58 kg at the European Qualification Tournament, but tested positive for doping, giving her nation's Olympic license to Moldova.[3]
  • l On 9 July 2016, United World Wrestling, following recent meldonium guidelines outlined by the International Olympic Committee and the World Anti-Doping Agency, has announced the reinstatement of National Olympic Committee qualification spots for the 2016 Olympic Games based on the performances of the following athletes: Magomedmurad Gadzhiev (Poland, FS 65 kg), Janarbek Kenjeev (Kyrgyzstan, GR 85 kg), Erdenechimegiin Sumiyaa (Mongolia, FW 53 kg), Andriy Kvyatkovskyi (Ukraine, FS 65 kg), Oksana Herhel (Ukraine, FW 58 kg). Ukraine's 125 kg wrestler Alen Zasyeyev, the only other athlete previously disqualified based on meldonium results, is not included in the above list as Ukraine qualified for an Olympic allocation during the 2nd World Qualifier in Istanbul. All National Olympic Committees previously granted Olympic qualification spots will not be impacted by this adjustment.[5]
  • m Australian Vinod Kumar Dahiya originally earned a quota place in men's Greco-Roman 66 kg at the African & Oceania Qualification Tournament, but tested positive for doping, giving his nation's Olympic license to New Zealand.[6]
  • n Russia's Viktor Lebedev originally earned a quota place at the 2015 World Championships, but because of new regulations set by the IOC, he was not allowed to participate due to a positive doping test at the 2006 Junior World Championships. His spot has been replaced by Belarus, the nation of the next best-ranked wrestler from the 2015 World Championships.[7] Later that decision was reverted by CAS.
