SENIOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP - BELGRADE, SEPTEMBER 10 - 18, 2022

Dear athletes, coaches, and fans of wrestling,

On behalf of United World Wrestling, I would like to wish you a warm welcome to Belgrade, the host city of the World Championships. We are proud to have the best wrestlers from the entire world in Serbia.

The past two years have been extremely difficult with a worldwide pandemic and now the growing conflict between Russia and Ukraine. That is why I would like to give special attention and express that my thoughts are with all victims and people who are being impacted by this terrible situation.

During times of such peril and hardship, we must look toward sport to remind us of the Olympic Values – friendship, respect, and excellence. Wrestlers take to the mat in September and will inspire new generations and bring positivity through sport which must be protected and preserved.

It is with pride to be back in Serbia and to organize our World Championships in its capital. Belgrade has already been a destination for UWW competitions, and it is a city that wholeheartedly embraces the sport of wrestling.

I would also like to give special thanks to the Serbian Wrestling Federation as well as the Organizing Committee and the City of Belgrade who are making a lot of effort to soon make us all proud.

I will be delighted to attend this Championships in September, with all competitors the very best, and encourage them to leave everything on the mat.
