    IOC drops Wrestling from 2020 Olympics

    Link: http://abcnews.go.com/Sports/wireSto...mpics-18473870

    "...Wrestling will now join seven other sports in applying for inclusion in 2020. The others are a combined bid from baseball and softball, karate, squash, roller sports, sport climbing, wakeboarding and wushu. They will be vying for a single opening in 2020..."


    "...The IOC program commission report analyzed more than three dozen criteria, including television ratings, ticket sales, anti-doping policy and global participation and popularity..."


    Wel it's been reported on several other news sites, so it isn't a hoax, but this time I really wished it was one.

    At first I was unhappy, but then I realised they might replace it with this:


    Wouldn't that be just mind-bendingly awesome?

    Its a strange decision on a lot of levels....its one of the foundations of the old timey Olympics, and one would think it gets more viewers than say....rhythmic dancing and synchronized swimming.

    Its for the 2020 games, so there is lots of time, I predict the decision gets reversed before then due to public outcry.

    I posted a video of performance Wushu, which is sub-standard gymnastics in silk pyjamas.

    I was being sarcastic, you see. This is, in fact, a mind-blowing travesty.

    I'm good at sarcasm.

    I suspected that it would be a video of synchronized swimming...but then I remembered that this is already on the Olympics schedule.

    Some form of Wrestling existed in the Ancient Olympic Games.
    "Modern" Wrestling was there at the start of the Modern Olympic Games in 1896 and became a regular since 1904.

    [RANT]

    The idea behind creating the Modern Olympic Games was not to bring people together to
    "contribute to building a peaceful and better world by educating youth through sport practised without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play",
    but to create a better soldier:
    "Some believe that Coubertin attributed the defeat of France in the Franco-Prussian War not to its military skills but rather to the French soldiers' lack of vigor'. After examining the education of the German, British, and American children, Coubertin decided that it was exercise, more specifically sports, that made a well-rounded and vigorous person."


    So you would expect that sports as Boxing, Wrestling, Pankration, Penthatlon, Triatlon and so on would have a prominent position in the 25 core sports, but the IOC is more about greed than tradition.
    I suspect that we will get pole-dancing in the 2024 games.

    http://www.cbc.ca/sports/story/2013/...wrestling.html

    What the flying ****? I can't believe this.

    Squash and wushu instead of wrestling? They should make latino dancing an Olympic sport.
