The Olympics have been hosting wrestling as long as any other sport. The only sport that is older in the Olympics is the 200 meter dash. Wrestling has been around so long the Ancient Athenians of Ancient Greece used to teach it. Now the IOC executive board has voted to get rid of wrestling from the 2020 summer Olympics.
So many people are getting aggravated about this it is almost unbelievable that they would vote against it. For example, even wide receiver Roddy White is riled up, because he is a two time state champion himself in the sport. Also, the governor of Iowa now has a press conference on Friday to discuss his thoughts on the topic, plus the 1972 gold medalist Dan Gable will be joining him. The governor Terry Branstad is starting a campaign to keep the sport in the Olympics.
