Wrestling is a major sport thought the world. The fact that no equipment is required allows even the poorest countries to participate. The IOC is politicized in profoundly unfair ways. The USOC isn't much better but could mount a substantial world wide news campaign and treaten to fight any monety contributions from North America or the EU.

Wrestling is the foundation sport of the olympics... New sports are good, but don't do away with founding ones. Publicize wrestling more.... Show at better times during the olympics,,, and that alone will get more involved.... Promote and go into history of the wrestlers and there road to the olympics and make the matches more involved.

Wrestling is one of the oldest olympic sports. why should it be denied a place in the Summer olympics to make room for some sports which have no bearing on the true nature of the olympics. Pleasr reverse the decision to omit it.

I come from a wrestling family, both my brothers wrestled for most their lives. It's not just about the sport, it shapes boy to become men that are unstoppable!!! I kid you not!!! You put a wrestler up against anyone else in this entire world, whatever the task may be and he will demolish his competition. A man was in biggest loser and he won the competition.....he is a wrestler!!!! Bin and Jillian had no idea how easy their jobs would be that season.

What about what the athletes want? Some of these people have trained for years for one shot at Olympic pride and the Glory of representing their countries.

I grew up in small town in Washington State Chelan My Coaches(Bob Loomis and Randy Mc Guffin) were great educators and taught me self disipline and leadership. Things that are very important in life. After High School I made some poor decisions got into alcohol and drugs. Since cleaning up my life I have went back to these standards and principles that were taught to me Long ago. I am currently coaching at a JR High program and teaching young wrestlers these same standards and princples...

Olmpic Committee you are affectting alot of Kids dreams and doing the world a injustice by killing our sport.
