Wrestling, one of the earliest and most elemental Olympic sports, was dropped from the Summer Games on Tuesday in a stunning and widely criticized decision by the International Olympic Committee. Apart from track and field, wrestling is considered by many the oldest competitive sport, one that made its first appearance at the ancient Olympic Games in 708 B.C.

 

Link-o-matic

 

My favorite part of the article:

"Among the sports that wrestling must compete with for future inclusion are rock climbing, rollerblading and wakeboarding."

But... think of all the edge-of-your-seat moments that can happen during rock climbing.  Going to be a nail-biter for sure.

 

Fuck them for getting rid of wrestling.


Shut your face. If I wanted to hear from an asshole, I'd fart.

It would be like Nascar where everybody just watches to see if someone crashes.

Exactly.  Maybe a rock climber will fall on a rollerblader.  Gold fucking medal for sure.
