Belarus' Yusup Jalilau and Ukraine's Alen Zasyeyev initially secured quota places for their respective countries in the men's freestyle 125kg at the European Qualification Tournament, but have had their results nullified and associate Olympic licenses revoked due to doping violations for meldonium. As a result, the Olympic licenses were redistributed to Bulgaria and Hungary.
