Save Olympic Wrestling

On Tuesday, February 12th, the International Olympic Committee voted by secret ballot to recommend that wrestling be dropped from the Olympics in 2020. Wrestling has been in the Olympics since it's ancient origin and has been included in the modern Olympics since 1896. I see no reason to eliminate it as a sport.
My son wrestled his entire life and I love the sport of wrestling. It is the only sport where it is equal. The wrestlers weigh about the same weight and it is up to them if they win or lose.
Let's tell the IOC that wrestlers and their fans around the world want to see this historic sport stay in the Olympics where it began and belongs today.
Per USA Wrestling
1) FILA, the international wrestling federation, the U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Wrestling did not expect this announcement. None of these leadership groups anticipated that wrestling was being considered for this.
2) This is a decision by the International Olympic Committee Executive Board. The recommendation is that wrestling not be included as a core sport at the 2020 Olympic Committee. This is not a final decision. This is not a final decision.
Let's make sure the final Decision is correct.
