    Default IOC ousts wrestling from the Olympics!

    The IOC has ousted Wrestling from the Olympics. What's left? Field hockey,squash, wushu, roller sports, karate, sport climbing, and wakeboarding. Wrestling is an original Olympic sport!! Protest vigorously!!

    I agree what about guys like Dan Gable and Rulon Gardner, those are some REAL American Olympians, taking out wrestling is absurd, during the Cold War years there was nothing better than watching Team USA beating a Russian or Soviet Bloc member

    They are taking it out because no other country dominates it like us.

    Its the only sport that it in the end win or lose, you did it by yourself, for yourself and the most important muscle is heart.

    Its probably to violent for all the " yuppies "

    Turkey has long been dominant in the sport and Russia is also a power house.
