Mongolia's Erdenechimegiin Sumiyaa originally earned a quota place in women's freestyle 53kg at the Asian Qualification Tournament, but tested positive for doping, giving her nation's Olympic license to India. On 9 July 2016, United World Wrestling, following recent meldonium guidelines outlined by the International Olympic Committee and the World Anti-Doping Agency, has announced the reinstatement of National Olympic Committee qualification spots for the 2016 Olympic Games based on the performances of the following athletes: Magomedmurad Gadzhiev (Poland, FS 65 kg), Janarbek Kenjeev (Kyrgyzstan, GR 85 kg), Erdenechimegiin Sumiyaa (Mongolia, FW 53 kg), Andriy Kvyatkovskyi (Ukraine, FS 65 kg), Oksana Herhel (Ukraine, FW 58 kg). Ukraine's 125 kg wrestler Alen Zasyeyev , the only other athlete peviously disqualified based on meldonium results, is not included in the above list as Ukraine qualified for an Olympic allocation during the 2nd World Qualifier in Istanbul. All National Olympic Committees previously granted Olympic qualification spots will not be impacted by this adjustment.
