Wrestling is back for the 2020 games in Tokyo.

The International Olympic Committee voted Sunday to add the sport to the roster for the 2020 Olympics, according to CNN.

The IOC decided earlier this year to eliminate the sport from the games, along with a few other sports after the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

When the committee originally made the decision to eliminate the sports, it said it did so to “remain relevant to sports fans of all generations,” but the wrestling world made a successful bid to the IOC to stay in the games.
