It has been a core sport since the first modern Olympics in Athens took place, how in the hell can you scrap it, for tae kwan do, or field hockey ? That really pisses me off.
aren't there enough other garbage made up olympic sports that have been added over the years that could be scrapped instead?
My point exactly! Here's a good read (IMO)
Wrestling was booted off the Olympic schedule for 2020 'It's not a case of what's wrong with wrestling, it is what's right with the 25 core sports,' IOC spokesman Mark Adams said after the voting was revealed.
Well, first the international body ruined freestyle with the rule changes that made it into the boring farce that it is today. Then, they eliminated weight classes. I guess this was the natural progression but I'm mad as hell.
Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
And they are adding golf? For cripes sake, golf is something you do when you drink beer! Wrestling is something that requires a finely tuned mind and body.
