The oldest competition in the summer olympics is gone , gone , gone and who knows if it will ever be back again. The International Olympic Committee has dropped wrestling from the 2020 Summer Games. Because it is not as popular as it used to be. The IOC has decided it isn’t worth having. I happen to think that this sucks. I understand that the world is a changing place and that things become old but there is a tradition here that we are allowing to crumble away.
at the London Olympics last August.
