The IOC consistently ignores the desires of its viewers and disrespects its own athletes. When millions worldwide requested a moment of silence at the 2012 games for the athletes slain at the the Munich games, the request was denied.

My son has been wrestling for 4 years. I love the sport. I have had the pleasure of also watching the girls on his team. It is a great sport and should not be taken away. My son and his friend also a wrestler both want to wrestler for the gold. It would be a shame if that dream was taken from them and so many others..

My 16 yr old grandson is competing in state champion competition very soon. I'm concerned for the longevity of the sport, in general. He wants to get a wrestling scholarship and there are not that much of a choice of colleges offering wrestling scholarships.
