    Wrestling dropped from 2020 Olympics

    This could be the wrong sub-forum so feel free to move this mods but apparently the IOC executive board are going to be dropping wrestling from the Olympics.

    Your thoughts?



    I know the sport isn't the biggest in the Olympics but I still kind of feel this is a bit of a loss really. I'm probably 1 of the only people in England who watched a part of it at London since our representatives didn't do well and BBC only bandwagon possible medal winners.

    Depends what they replace it with but can't say it was a sport I really followed at the Olympics.

    Its has been an Olympic sport since the ancient Greek Olympics

    I think its a disgrace that they are dropping this sport

    But i guess beach volley is more important




    What Arsenal fans think about RVP moving to UTD:

    Yes you're right, I didn't see any wrestling at the Olympics, the media decides which sports are in the spotlight and that isn't wrestling.

    Woman Beach volley is interesting to watch though

    Wrestling yanked from Olympic Games??

    from the New York Times:

    Wrestling, one of the most ancient and elemental Olympic sports, was removed from the Summer Games in a stunning and widely criticized decision Tuesday by the International Olympic Committee.

    Freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling will be contested at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, but they will be excluded from the 2020 Summer Games, which have not yet been awarded, the I.O.C. said Tuesday.There is a chance that the Olympic committee can change its mind at a meeting in May, when it considers the 26th sport to add to the 2020 Games, but wrestling’s future seems doubtful at the moment, according to veteran observers of the Games.


    This is unreal!! This will have a huge negative impact on youth wrestling, as well as the future of sports entertainment.
