So apparently wrestling might be dropped from the next Olympic games......



Honestly, its not one of the events I tune in to watch but its one of the oldest events in the history of the games and I do not understand the thinking behind this.

Yeah pretty stupid. I wrestled my whole but quit in college because I didnt want to cut weight in college. But wrestling is pretty much one of the orginal sports for the oylmpics and its a travesty it is getting cut. Must be a dishearting blow for elite college wrestlers who have only the oylmpics to look forward to after college.

Like seriously drop wrestling but badminton and ping pong are legit oylmpic events.

I've never wrestled but it is pretty confusing that wrestling is a possible one to go.

They're basically a joke in America, but badminton and ping-pong have fairly strong international audiences.

And they only got rid of wrestling because they wanted golf, which makes even less sense.

I don't care for wrestling, but the olympics needs a serious overhaul.

IMO the only sports that should be in the olympics are sports where achieving a gold medal is the absolute pinnacle of that sport. Football, tennis etc should most certainly not be in it.

The olympics should consist of basics such as running, swimming, lifting and others, sports that showcase the peak of human body physical capabilities (someone else word it better, i cbf).

If they are still willing to call curling a sport, then I don't trust this movement.

I'm not going to bother wording it in any other way...but certainly I agree with you.

I wrestled since kindergarten, but not in college, because I was sick of cutting weight as well . Well that, and I wanted to party, and drink, and do drugs, and just "play music man."

I don't think it will go through. I think that we will still have wrestling in the summer games.

It's funny though I thought that with the rise in popularity of MMA, that wrestling would become more popular as well, because nearly all of them have wrestling backrounds.

Well, the shape it was in this summer's olympics I can't say I'm even remotely surprised.

New rules + a corrupt head of both the Olympics as a whole and the wrestling association specifically makes for one poor excuse for a sport.

Yeah I just couldnt do the ten pound yoyo every three days. Hated it way too much to still wanna do it in college.
Well its slated to be removed for the 2020 games. At least my friend from cornell still has a chance to get in before they strike it from the record.
But I can see more going to MMA for that exact reason just like Jon Jones. We wrestled freestyle and greco and we in pee wee wrestling since kids and ge was a freak of nature kind of wrestling and his skills translated well over to MMA.

Regardless of their international follow it is still outlandish. Wrestling has been around since the first olympic games. Since we are at it lets just add cheerleading to the oylmpics, makes sense right?

You guys are talking about Greek wrestling, right ? Not the fancy choreographed WWF style that indeed does not deserve to be an Olympic sport ?

Regardless, as difficult as golf can be, it isn't nearly as Olympic as running, long-distance-jumping, the marathon, etc. But I guess if the IOC wants the Olympics to become even more popular and profitable, they can incorporate some Tiger Woods.

Might as well incorporate signing, see how long it takes before the wrist starts cramping.

I don't care for wrestling, and I really like playing golf

Therefore, I find golf more interesting.

The real question is: this is a sport the U.S. consistently dominates in the games. Will this hurt our overall gold medal count?
