There are two qualification events — Asian and World — to secure the remaining Olympic quotas.

India has booked quotas in four categories — Bajrang Punia (65kg), Ravi Dahiya (57kg), Deepak Punia (86kg) and Vinesh Phogat (women's 53kg).

"The same organisers as originally planned will stage remaining qualifiers," UWW said after a meeting of its Executive Board.

"All UWW Championships planned until 30th June 2020 are postponed to a later date to be decided in consultation with the concerned organisers. All international tournaments planned until 30th June 2020 are cancelled," it added.

Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) Assistant secretary Vinod Tomar told PTI that there was no threat to the senior national championship, planned in Gonda, UP, in December.

"We had not yet decided the venue for U-15 nationals but now it stands cancelled after UWW asked all federations to cancel nationals. There is still time for U-23 nationals in September and the senior nationals, we can decide on that as per the situation," Tomar said.
