Las Vegas will host the Wrestling World Championships in 2015. The championship will be the first qualification for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016. The management of the international Wrestling Federation chose Las Vegas in competition with several cities, including Tehran, New Delhi, Panama City and Sochi.
U.S. will accept World Wrestling Championships for the sixth time. The last time the country hosted them in 2003 in New York, in well organized prestigious race. Wrestling was threatened to be withdrawn from the Olympic Games program in 2020 upon the recommendation of the IOC Executive Committee.
The final decision will be taken by the IOC session in September in Buenos Aires.
