Wrestling dropped from the Olympics!?

IOC drops wrestling from 2020 Olympics - ESPN

Wrestling has been a part of the modern Olympics since its inception in 1896. It predates even this, going back as far as ancient Egyptian times. The Olympics is the pinnacle of wrestling. There is no professional outlet, nor money making potential.

How can they, what, I don't even

Which to me seems silly. I enjoy playing, but don't play often at all. There are already ways to measure players and groups of players, the tour and the Ryder Cup. So why is this needed? Will it be individual, team? Because that isn't covered with another competition that already exists.

Why change the lineup at all? Events aren't selling tickets? is that why they hold competitions, or is it to have a place to compete on an international level. Play it in Athens every time for all I care, no need to build these one-shot Johnny facilities that waste away when the event is over.

Travesty. Granted, golf is an international sport and you rarely see (real classic) wrestling on television, but those people deserve an international stage.

Thats wierd, that was one of the first if not the first Olympic event i think. Thats sad as it is surely something wrestlers strive to accomplish, a chance at the Olympics. They will probably eliminate anything that can be considered violent, probably all fighting and events with firearms will go next. Lets fill the olympics with marshmallows, and my little ponies so it is cute and safe.
