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)

Wrestling is a sport that builds character, refines discipline, and offers a great deal of personal satisfaction. It's a sport that a team can participate in, but success ultimately falls to the individual. It teaches strength, control, and boost confidence. To remove it from the Olympics would, in my opinion, make the Olympics incomplete. SAVE OLYMPIC WRESTLING!

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.

We lived in Manheim in the 60s, and Wrestling was a secular religion there. Kids in Elementary School wrestled there. It was a big deal. It's probably one of the more demanding sports in high school. No one does "Greco-Roman" wrestling--why toss collegiate wrestling into the void?
