Wrestling must be the oldest ( contact) sport .
It was a pillar of the antique olympics .
It was one of the nine sport represented in the modern games .
Then politics and money comes into the picture.
When the TV/Advert/sponsor says : ‘we want return on our money’ then it does not matter what makes a sport a sport.
For all they care hula hoop can be the next Olympic sport.
Maybe there is not enough doping in wrestling or other ‘news worthy’ things
The olympic comitee want to replace wrestling with sport I never even heard of ( wakeboarding,wushu)
Sign the petition …it just might help
