I don't even like wrestling and think this is wrong. At some point, tradition matters damn it, and dropping a sport that's been in since the Greeks created the Olympic Games is horrible. Hopefully IOC comes to their damn senses.
Seriously, wtf is "wushu" and why is wake boarding a possible event?
Same here. Not a wrestling fan, but come on. They drop wrestling? And they will keep stupid events (not even calling them sports) like trampoline.
Prolly to give China a chance.
Its five o'clock somewhere.
Did they drop tSearchFunction too?
The IOC is made up of idiots.
This. It's all about money, and if wrestling isn't generating enough ad/sponsorship $ it's gone. Haven't paid much attention to the Olympics since they made it just another pro event.
The Olympic$. This decision is a joke.
This is beyond stupid.
Kurt Angle is going to be freaking pissed.
Probably a short-lived decision. I can imagine that the backlash associated with eliminating a traditonal sport with roots back to the original games will be significant.
Though for the record, I'm glad that they dropped the tradition of competing nude. Watching men wrestle naked would be just wrong. Plus on the women's side - though I could make a better argument for it - it would significantly increase the drag and thus, the times, on the lady swimmers... (Though I could live with that - more breast stroke events!)
Spartans ...committed to bring Paul Bunyan home in 2013.
Wrestling or no wrestling at the Olympics, it's still real to me dammit.
Well, not JUST...
I blame this, as well as dropping wrestling, on China.
Somehow, this is their fault. Their efforts to win the medal count knows no bounds!
This is fucking tragic. How can this be real?
One of the funniest Youtube videos ever
Yikes. This is really going to hurt college wrestling.
I hate Illinois Nazis.
