However, the only attraction at U23 World Championship 2023 is Amit Elor switching from her previously fought 72 Kg wrestling category. Although she will compete in the 72kg category this time, she must switch to the Olympics weight class. The primary reason behind this switch is that 68 kg, 76kg, and 78kg weight classes are unavailable in the Olympics 2028. 

 In an exclusive interview with United World Wrestling, Amit Elor said, “I’m taking it one step at a time. I’m going to evaluate myself and see how I feel as I start to work toward health, slowly and healthy way to decrease my weight a little bit,”
