P.Orkhon’s coach and of­fi­cials of the Mon­go­lian Wrestling Fed­er­a­tion at­tended the schol­ar­ship grant­ing cer­e­mony.

The Olympic Schol­ar­ships is de­signed to im­prove the com­pet­i­tive­ness of the Olympic Games.

The Olympic schol­ar­ship pro­gram offers Na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tees the op­por­tu­nity to ob­tain fi­nan­cial and tech­ni­cal as­sis­tance for a limited num­ber of elite ath­letes who are train­ing to qual­ify for the Tokyo 2020 Sum­mer Olympic Games.

Ac­cor­dance to the schol­ar­ships rule, grant re­ceivers must avoid all eth­i­cal prob­lems and banned sub­stances. If they breach the rule, they will be re­moved from the pro­gram.

The pre­vi­ous schol­ar­ship pro­gram for the Rio 2016 Olympics in­volved 17 ath­letes from Mon­go­lia.
