Welcoming the official announcement of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Wrestling selection policy and standard, Vlad Gladkov, Wrestling Head Coach said: “The Wrestling family in Scotland is absolutely delighted to be part of Team Scotland at the upcoming UK based Games. This will be an amazing lifetime experience for our athletes and support staff.
I am very pleased to say that Scottish Wrestling and Commonwealth Games Scotland have been working hard together to ensure that the wrestling selection policy is communicated well in advance. This will help athletes plan in advance and ensure a preparation at the highest standard. Due to COVID 19 this is an unprecedented time in recent history for sports especially contact sports like wrestling. Nevertheless, I truly believe in our dedicated athletes and their great potential."
