This part explains why modern pentathlon is trumping wrestling:
An I.O.C. spokesman said of Tuesday’s vote, “It’s not a case of what’s wrong with wrestling.” It’s a matter of what’s right with the other sports, he claimed. But what to think about the board member Juan Antonio Samaranch Jr. of Spain? The son of a former I.O.C. president, he is also a vice president of the International Modern Pentathlon Union. In the international wrestling community, talk of his conflict of interests is understandably widespread.
Poor leadership allowed the sport’s enemies to take it down.

This is ridiculous!
15 National Championships and one Urban Meyer heart attack, Roll Tide. 23 NC's in wrestling and one badass Herky, Go Hawks.
That's fine. I think Mr. Irving needs his own spotlight. You know- wrestling and the Writers Workshop and all.
Besides, got my lesson from skyhawk for starting extra threads. =)
Thanks for sharing. Liked this part.
I was in Iowa City in 2012 for the United States Olympic trials; when a match came down to overtime, there was a groan from the 14,000 faithful in Carver-Hawkeye arena. These fans are among the most savvy and appreciative in American wrestling; yet what I heard was their skepticism, truly their disgust, each time there was a ball draw or the clinch.
