Competitions take place in eight weight categories (four for men and four for women) and in direct elimination brackets. The winners of each bracket vie for the gold medal. All participants who lose to one of the finalists at any stage of the competition go to the repêchage bracket. The two losers at the semi-finals face the winners of two repêchage brackets for two bronze medals.
