Design details:

Wrestling was one of the original sports in the programme of the ancient Olympic Games in Greece in 776 BC. While Greco-Roman is the 'original' style, freestyle wrestling grew in popularity across the UK and USA, and both are now Olympic events. The Wrestling 50p was designed by Roderick Enriquez, a graphic designer from London. 2017
