It all has to do with ratings and what people will pay to watch. It's a for profit sporting event, don't kid yourselves otherwise.
They'll drop the unprofitable stuff and add the things people will be willing to watch.
They dropped Croquet in 1902 or something on those lines after next to no one showed up to watch it.
I don't feel it was right to drop it considering all the other goofy events they have still in the olympics.

Anybody ever heard of a movie called "The Boobtube? Sex Olympics!!!
Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical,
Liberal minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media,
which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

As a former high school and collegiate wrestler along with knowing and working out with past and future Olympians who are alumni of my high school it is simply a sad day.
Judged sports are garbage sorry this is my opinion and to think my wife is on a dance team that competes but what happened to competition?
Unicorns and marshmallows. BLAH!!!

I'd watch Olympic "Professional Wrestling". Make it a performance sport with teams of 2 that go into a ring and are scored together like synchronized diving or paired figure skating.
