Default Olympic Games - IOC axe wrestling from 2020 Games

http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/news/o...114258484.html

Wrestling will not feature in the 2020 Olympic Games after the International Olympic Committee's Executive Board made a surprise recommendation to drop one of the oldest sports at the Games.


I can think of heaps of sports more deserving of being axed!

That does seem to be IOC's mantra.

Yet another reason for me not to care about (much less watch) the Olympics. They lost me after making pro hockey and basketball players eligible to compete. Haven't looked back since.

Yeah I find it good to watch but only for sports in which Olympics is the pinnacle or like boxing (with the Olympic event still being amateur and distinct from the championship bouts), don't really care for Olympics tennis or soccer type sports though. Strange how they're axing these sports without citing logical reasons while keeping some of the "exotic" ones that have much lesser following or heritage.
