    United States and Iran Come Together in Support of Olympic Wrestling


    If there's one thing the citizens nearly any country can agree on, it's that the IOC's decision to remove Wrestling from the Olympics, was a poor one. Athletes from the United States and Iran are standing together, literally, to protest the decision.

    At the start of the Wrestling World Cup, hosted in Tehran from February 21-22, American and Iranian athletes held hands and smiled to the crowd while standing behind a long banned that read: “Olympics without wrestling! never never” in both English and Farsi. “We need the backing of Iran and Russia… to preserve wrestling, and this goes beyond politics… Iran is one of the powers in wrestling and can defend the game’s credibility,” said Rich Bender, executive director of USA Wrestling, according to the ISNA state news agency.

    While it remains to be seen how the US and the Islamic "Republic" of Iran -- and its desire to obtain nuclear weaponry -- will work out their greater differences, it's good to know that the concept of "bullshit" is the same in any language.

    Oddly heartwarming.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Isn't this what the olympics is supposed to be all about

    Great news
    Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    It still feels like I'm living in some bizzaro universe all of a sudden that the IOC is doing this. Wrestling is one of the sports that goes all the way back to the original Olympics in ancient Greece. It makes no sense to remove a purely objective athletic competition from the Olympics when there are so many events that focus more on artistic presentation and other subjective aspects. This runs totally counter to the spirit of the games.
