IOC Removes Wrestling from Olympics

Really? 2016 will be the last Olympics with wrestling. Really?! It's one of the more closely contested sports at the Olympics, with dozens of countries that could go home with the gold. It is one of the most fundamental activities at the Games, something that was still resembled what the Olympics used to be. And guess what, two of the criteria for excluding wrestling were TV ratings and ticket sales. Pathetic. It will probably be replaced by BMX Park or something else more X-gamey. Not cool Olympics, not cool.
