It became a permanent fixture on the Olympic programme in 1908. Freestyle wrestling made its debut a few years later at the St Louis 1904 Games and has featured on the Olympic programme ever since the Antwerp 1920 Games. Women’s freestyle wrestling has been on the Olympic programme since the Athens 2004 Games.
