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. Although 23-58.5 million view wrestling, it is being removed for modern pentathlon which only has 12.5-33.5 mil viewers. Moshe Weinberg, the wrestling coach of the Munich 11 and fellow wrestling athletes Eliezer Halfin and Markk Slavin were killed while...

Wrestling is an art. There is a difference. How can they justify removing an ancient art and keeping ping pong? What's wrong with these people?

Can't wait for next Olympics to watch the match between North Koreas Ho Bang Mi Too vs Chinas Ping Pang Poo Poo. Should be worth taping.

while I enjoy waterpolo and volleyball, I couild do without the boring batmidon, ping pong, water ballet (sync-swimming) and the fake sport of rythmic gymnastics (why don't the just call it what it is playing with toys while pretending you can dance and tumble)

My Son has been Wrestling since kindergarten, only 5 yrs old. He is now a Senior and made it to State (IN) this year. It was his dream for many years and worked hard to be so successful. Wrestling has helped build his character in SO many ways. This sport is not to be confused with WWF or UFC... This is a sport that ppl often forget about and if you've ever had a chance to experience it personally, as a parent, fan, coach etc... Then you know exactly the depth of this amazing sport...
