The eight-member delegation from Ukraine arrived in Japan Thursday after finding it increasingly difficult to train back home amid Russia’s invasion. The wrestlers will train in western Japan’s Oita and Ehime prefectures in June before flying to the event, which is centered around non-Olympic sports.
