Ssireum, or Korean wrestling, is a folk wrestling style and a traditional national sport of Korea that began in the fourth century and is a popular sport to watch during the Lunar New Year holidays.

A total of 238 men and women broken into weight classes will participate in the event which takes place from February 10-15.
