Serbia won’t be taking part in the upcoming Greco-Roman World Cup that is taking place on this weekend (November 5-6) in Baku, Azerbaijan.
The reason of the withdrew of the Serbian wrestlers is COVID-19 infections in the team. In this case, Azerbaijan and the All-World team will receive automatic wins and the winner of the Azerbaijan-All-Star clash will wrestle in the final.
