IOC leaders dropped wrestling from the Olympic program on Tuesday, a surprise decision that removes one of the oldest Olympic sports from the 2020 Games.

The IOC executive board decided to retain modern pentathlon — the event considered most at risk — and remove wrestling instead from its list of 25 "core sports."

Yeah really. They had teams throwing the same game trying to get a better match up. I can't figure this out!!! we need an Icon with a guy jumping up and down then his head explodes that's how upsetting this is for me.

This is a joke! Some of the "sports" they have in the Olympics are a joke and they cut one of the original games to make room!

Let's point the finger towards something other than badminton, okay? It's clear that synchronized swimming should be first to go. This former badminton club president would not like to see badminton go

Complete BS. Wrestling is one of the oldest sports in the world, if not the oldest and one of the original olympic sports. The Olympics are a joke.

The only good thing that will come of this is that now you are going to get all the olympic caliber wrestlers coming straight into MMA/UFC instead of training for / competing in the Olympics first.

I'm disgusted. There are a ton of ridiculous events, or events dominated by just a few countries. Synchronized swimming, modern pentathlon, equestrian(which has 3 fucking categories), and aquatic dancing come to mind as ridiculous sports, and taekwondo and table tennis come to mind as sports dominated by only a couple of countries. There were 26 countries represented in the fucking stupid new sport of modern pentathlon(pistol shooting, fencing, swimming, jumping on fucking horses, and cross country running), 71 for wrestling at the last Olympics. Yeah, that modern pentathlon line up of events really flows together and makes perfect sense. Fuck the IOC, this is the stupidest decision they've ever made.
