Wrestling Counted Out

The International Olympic Committee body slammed wrestling, banishing the ancient sport from the modern games. Strangely, they decided to retain taekwondo and field hockey. Like so much Olympic judging, this decision has politics and behind-the-scenes wheeling-and-dealing written all over it. The move takes effect in 2020. No word yet on how the Moondogs, Mabel, or the Iron Sheik are taking the bad news for their sport.

Considering wrestling was, I think,one of the founding sports in the Olympics it should be kept around if for no other reason than tradition.

However, I personsonally think any sport that has subjective scoring should be eliminated.
