NO MORE OLYMPIC WRESTLING
So the most ancient of Olympic Sports WRESTLING is to be stopped in the 2020 Olympics what a disgrace and look what they want to put in its place:
The list includes baseball/softball, squash, karate, sport climbing, wakeboarding, wushu and roller sports. Why Karate and Wu Shu we have one kicking sport in the Olympics called Tae Kwon Do? As for the others they have nothing to do with the original Olympics which all were about preparing for physical Combat.
The Olympics is a corporate machine designed to make money for the IOC, Sponsors and Athletes it has lost all its appeal as a world meeting of amateur sportsman
With UK funding only going to certain Olympic sports, the majority of sports and sportsman will suffer because of our obsession with the Olympic Games. Remember all the hype about the benefits the London Olympics what a load of Rubbish
Finally Sambo can forget about inclusion in any future Olympics if FILA one of the richest sports organisation in the World can not retain their position what chance has FIAS have especially with the internal problems they have
