Wrestling at the Champ de Mars

Wrestling, one of the world's oldest competitive sports after athletics, has a long history dating back to the first Ancient Games. Its popularity endures thanks to its simple, accessible nature, requiring no special equipment to be practiced. Athletes compete in different weight categories, using their strength, agility and technique to dominate their opponents. Practised with bare hands, wrestling takes place in a limited space where the main objective is to pin the opponent's back to the ground for a few seconds. Each bout is synonymous with palpable tension, adrenalin and intense determination on the part of the wrestlers.

The Arena Champ-de-Mars, located at the foot of the Eiffel Tower and close to the École Militaire, offers an emblematic setting for these wrestling competitions. With the imposing silhouette of the Eiffel Tower in the background, spectators will be immersed in a unique atmosphere, blending the excitement of the sport with the beauty of Paris. The Grand Palais Ephémère, renamed Arena Champ-de-Mars during the events, will be the venue for Judo and Para Judo competitions, as well as wrestling and wheelchair rugby.
