The sport of wrestling gave birth to the olympic games. Long before ping pong, badminton and ribbon dancing, athletes grappled for olympic glory. No sport known to man has a richer or longer running history. Eliminating wrestling from olympic competition will weaken the very foundation the games were built upon.
Wrestlers have no professional outlet for their sport, they do not chase Millions or fame or glory.. They compete in the purest since of the sport... To challenge themselves.... their minds, their bodies and their spirit....
Please tell the IOC these brave young men & women deserve the right to compete...
