PASSIVE WRESTLING

In order to stimulate the active actions of wrestlers, a rule was introduced at the time according to which athletes were punished with penalty points for passive wrestling. Currently, this rule has been canceled, the referee only makes verbal remarks and issues a warning to the “passive” wrestler. However, the more active of the rivals has certain advantages. So, for example, he is allowed to conduct an attacking action from the “standard position”: at the command of the referee, the athlete tries to conduct an attack against the opponent put on the ground for 30 seconds.

Wrestling carpet.
It is a square mat with a vinyl coating of 12 meters side. The minimum thickness of the carpet is 4 centimeters. The so-called “competition area” is a yellow circle with a diameter of 9 meters, in the center of which is marked in red a small inner, or central, circle – with a diameter of 1 meter. Here the fight is not waged – it is just beginning, here the wrestlers come back every time after the fight stops, as well as when placing one of the opponents in the position of the stalls. The main actions take place in an 8-meter wrestling zone. Inside the perimeter of the 9-meter circle is a red strip 1 meter wide – the so-called “passivity zone”.

Before the Olympics in Sydney, an attempt was made to change the traditional shape of the carpet. The square mat was “cut off” at the corners so that it turned into an octagon. But this innovation did not take root.
