DUBROVNIK, Croatia (AP) - Wrestling’s international governing body could soon be changing its name.

An executive committee for FILA has approved “United World Wrestling” as the organization’s new moniker.

FILA President Nenad Lalovic says the organization’s proposed rebranding is both distinct and “represents the values of wrestling.”

The new name and accompanying logo must be approved by a FILA congress in Uzbekistan in September.
