Re: Olympics to chuck out wrestling?
I haven't looked at AikiWeb in a week or so and this is the first thing I see!
This just goes to show the direction the Olympics have been heading in for some time now.
I saw TV ratings mentioned. The funny thing is that wrestling is one of the only sports I want to watch in the Olympics, but they show it at the worst possible times. How many viewers can you get at 3:38 am?
If I were in charge (and I'm 100% certain that I never will happen) the Olympics would be pared down to track & field; wrestling, both Greco-Roman and free-style; boxing; mma; a traditional display of gymnastics, including rope climbing; weight lifting; and swimming.
There are many other great sports, games, and activities. Many that I enjoy.
None belong in the Olympics.
