    Is FILA ever going to change the 120kg weight class in wrestling back to 130kg?

    Yeah as soon as they bring back 48 kg.

    Do you think it will be changed back in time for the 2016 Olympics?

    I think he was being sarcastic...

    I do know that they are trying to get all 7 weights for the women into the 2012 Olympics (right now they only have 4) so perhaps they might be adding back some men's weights too. I highly doubt it though.

    why did they change it from 130kg to 120kg anyway?

    Starting Jan 1 2002, they restructured all the weight classes to make room for women's wrestling in the Olympics. They took away one men's weight class (it used to be 8, now there are 7) so when they did so, they made the lowest weight class higher (54 became 55 kg) and the highest weight class lower (130 became 120 kg) and reshuffled all the weights in between.
