Wrestling Dropped From Olympics
Wall Street Journal, by STU WOO, MATTHEW FUTTERMAN

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 2/13/2013 6:45:13 AM

The International Olympic Committee has dropped wrestling from the 2020 Summer Games, a surprising decision that has bewildered athletes and fans of the longtime Olympic sport.The IOC said Tuesday that its executive board recommended excluding wrestling from its list of core sports. Wrestling still has a chance to return to the Games in 2020 via a complicated process: The IOC later this year will choose one of eight shortlisted sports—wrestling, baseball/softball, climbing, karate, roller sports, squash, wakeboarding and a Chinese martial art called wushu—to add to the 2020 program.

No room for an amatuer sport in the Olympics.

I wasn´t glued to the tv last Olympics - watched just a little - but when it ended, I realized I´d heard nothing of boxing. And, yeah, where was wrestling? Two one-time mainstays of the games, pure one on one contests, now all but invisible. The Olympics officially stink.

"Maybe they should make the "________´s" wear dresses."

Wasn´t Greco-Roman wrestling one of the original sports? One of the oldest in Western civilization/history?

"Roller sports"? Are they keeping "synchronized swimming"? Is that a "sport" or an Esther Williams movie?

I wrestled in high school and the AAU before the joining the military in the 1950s. It was and is a clean sport where the athlete has only himself to blame for not prevailing. Good lessons for those in their formative years. Maybe they should replace it with the fruits of today´s K-12 sex education -- the only subject in which today´s kids are eager to do extra homework. The IOC is disgusting!

Wrestling saved me from becomming some wiseass punk. It gave me self-esteem and a sense of empowerment. these attributes are mentioned all the time as good but really are just words today. I have promoted wrestling because it is not a team sport and competitors wrestle those that are at the same competitive level, age and wieght. It is one of the orginal olympic sports. I have no use for the Olympics anymore they have become commonplace and boring.

My 9th grade son who wrestles is devastated. He finally understands that the world is not fair and is run by people who want to "change the world" whether or not you like it the way it is or not. I have several comments:
1. The Olympics are about money, plain and simple. Nobody is making money off of wrestling.

2. The Americans win a lot of medals in wrestling and the other countries are going to be against it for that reason.

3. There are no pretty girls or openly gay athletes in wrestling, therefore no darlings of the media.

4. Women do not watch wrestling (unless it is their own kid, then they are rabid fans!). They would rather watch those men in those faggy swimtrunks dive or gymnastics.

5. Wrestling has a winner and a loser. They cant stand that. How the hell do you tell who wins a diving contest. They all look the same, but you sure can tell when someone is pinned on the mat!

6. When an athlete reaches the pinnacle of NCAA wrestling, there is only one place to go: The olympics. When you are a champion young golfer, there are many, many venues for you to continue your career forever. You dont need olympic golf to see who is best. Just turn on the golf channel 24/7. The olympics is the only thing that college wrestlers have to dream of.

In conclusion, if it is possible, I am more disgusted than ever with the IOC.

I have to disagree with those who say that wrestlers aren´t good looking, mine is.
All the Olympics are anymore is a circus. That´s what I took from the article, especially with how archery has changed their scoring: there must be drama somewhere. This isn´t about sports and athletes anymore, it´s a tv drama.

I am a wrestler since 7th grade. One of the most character building sports in existence. It is the least violent fighting sport. The conditioning required is unbelievable. Eliminating wrestling from the sport is like eliminating painting from an art gallery. There are so many questionable sports. Olympics are about physical conditioning. They should take all the artsy sports and put them in another category of Olympics: Water ballet. A sad day.

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant. The exchange got testy at times when Stahl continued to question Rev.

Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

And this problem could cost investors far more money than any shenanigans related to high frequency trading. When the average investor, or even

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can
