Weaponless combat sports like wrestling and boxing were found universally distributed among all human groups at the beginning of recorded history. Today, free-style and Greco-Roman wrestling are very competitive Olympic events. Greco-Roman wrestling differs from free-style wrestling in that the legs cannot be used to clasp or hold the opponent. Greco-Roman wrestling was included in the first modern Olympic Games at Athens, in 1896.

This painting was originally published on the Fleetwood® First Day Cover for the Papua New Guinea The World's Salute to the Olympics 45t stamp issued September 19, 1988.
