The fourth day of WUC Wrestling competitions presented the debut of the Greco-Roman style for the male categories. Diferent of the freestyle, in Greco-Roman athletes can only use trunk and arms to defend and attack. If one of the opponents manages to open an 8-point margin during the fight he is considered a winner for technical superiority.
