My nephews enjoy wrestling in school and would like to see it stay an olympic sport. They deserve the right to participate in 'their' sport the same as athletes in other sports.

Are you kidding me! Wrestling is THE OLDEST SPORT PERIOD. What are we going to replace it with croquet and badminton. I bet it is getting cold in Hades.

The Olympics are based on the ancient skills of the ancient Greeks which included skills fitting a warrior. Wrestling has always been a part of the Olympics from day one and as part of the core sports needs to continue as part of that core. Running, throwing a discus, throwing a javelin, the hammer throw are waht makes the Olympics. History has shown that once you deviate from your core values the product is never the same. The people running the Olympics need to be replaced if they can't see the forest for the trees.

How is it the Olympics has BMX racing, beach ball, basket ball, and water polo but, will remove one of its most ancient sports? This Olympic committee appears to be only interested in which sport will make the most money.

Really I'm thinking how it's possible? wrestling is one of most amazing and fascinating individual sports in all world. you removing it from Olympic, then you telling people to go by computer games ha? Wrestling in addition of being a power based sport has a taste of tradition fighting in human socials.... Pleaaase do not do that.
