The Oceania Wrestling Championships begin in the Marshall Islands on Friday and organisers are promising more than just top-level competition.
The International Olympic Committee announced in 2013 it wanted the sport dropped for the 2020 Games, before changing its mind later in the year.
Athletes from 16 Pacific nations are competing in Majuro, with places at the Junior and Senior World Champs later this year up for grabs.
The Secretary General of the Marshall Islands National Olympic Committee, Terry Sasser, says they're trying to broaden wrestlings appeal to the public.
"It's going to be very competitive and I think, with the United World Wrestling people here on site and Korean delegates and people from Europe, everybody wants to make a good show. We've got colour and lights, we've got loud music, we've got huge PAs - thatat's part of the thing that was missing, and United World Wrestling has definitely said to the organising comittee, they've mandated that we not only deliver a games that are not only professional but entertaining".
The Oceania Champs run for three days.
