Wrestling at the 2012 Summer Olympics – Men's Greco-Roman 96 kg

Men's Greco-Roman 96 kg competition at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom, took place on 7 August at ExCeL London.[1] This Greco-Roman wrestling competition consists of a single-elimination tournament, with a repechage used to determine the winner of two bronze medals. The two finalists face off for gold and silver medals. Each wrestler who loses to one of the two finalists moves into the repechage, culminating in a pair of bronze medal matches featuring the semifinal losers each facing the remaining repechage opponent from their half of the bracket.
