United World Wrestling, the international governing body for amateur wrestling, is mulling revising Olympic weight categories ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Games, a source with knowledge of the move said Tuesday.

According the source, changes will be made in the women’s categories in which Kaori Icho (58 kg) Risako Kawai (63 kg) and Sara Dosho (69 kg) all won gold medals at last year’s Rio Olympics.
