Reinstate wrestling

I think it is appalling that the International Olympic Committee has decided that wrestling should be cut from future Olympics.

Wrestling is one of the absolute original events and dates back hundreds of years.

If anything needs to be cut, it should be professionals in their chosen sport. They are already at the top of their game and receive obscene amounts of money for the privilege.

We already know these athletes are good, others from smaller countries who are not so fortunate don’t stand much of a chance.

I am not watching some of these sports during the Olympics. No doubt the event will be losing more fans if this keeps up.
