(Automated analyzing system of wrestling games), (Monography in French language), page 26. For this project the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens – SEFAA and the Russian Institute of Sport Research (Moscow) cooperated. It detects the inadequacy of the wrestling games’ regulational system, the changes and the corrections which have been done until now and it presents the mutual relation

between racing activity and methodical training as a unit, in contrast of the way they have been studied until now, separately.

For this reason we edited an automated analyzing system of wrestling games for computers.

This gives us the opportunity:

• To study the characteristic data of the game, the strong and weak sides of the technical-tactical skills, the physical condition of the wrestlers and their opponents and to accurately guide their preparation.

• To evaluate objectively, through the general spectacle index, the contribution of regulations to it, the level of evolution and its popularity.

This project was a request of FILA that sent it to all the national Federations of its member states, so the wrestling could be further developed.
