Unbelievable, Wrestling dropped from the 2020 Olympics! The oldest sport in Modern Olympic History and perhaps the oldest sport period. Crazy that they are gonna tell the hardest working athletes in possibly the most grueling sport in the world that they can’t participate in the Olympics….shocking

    Curling. Maybe CrossFit is replacing wrestling.

    A travesty of justice indeed!
    Props to Sarah and Chris on the video on the main site! What am I going to so with all this fitness!
    You can’t conceal the Speal!

    Speed walking

  • Mom says:

    Drop ANYTHING else but wrestling…I agree with Julie on the curling. Sweeping the ice with a broom? We tried that sport once and could not even take it seriously! So sad that the oldest sport in history is not being recognized.

  • Barry says:

    Just another example of our “what have you done for me lately” society….no respect for tradition. Lame.

  • Mike E says:

    My condolences. You would think with a name like Greco-Roman that it would be impossible to separate from the games. I suppose Chris and Eric were new age freestylers though. I would ditch equestrian events and goat roping.

  • Addy says:

    Max weight for a set of 20 back squats? Yeesh…

  • Ryan Reilly says:

    Golf, drop it before it even starts. It’s a game not a sport, no athletisism involved.

  • brian r. says:

    isn’t synchronized swimming in the olympics? if the answer is yes, it shouldn’t be.

  • Micah says:

    Agree – synchronized swimming, chop it!
    FYI curling is Winter Olympics….. Maybe they will transfer wrestling to Winter Olympics and make it “Ice wrestling”

  • Ron says:

    How about we combine Wrestling with Curling and make it a new and exciting event?

  • Jules says:

    Synchronized swimming was my next choice. If we have to chose season dependent I say nix that for sure 😉

  • Scott says:

    I agree that this is a travesty. The Olympics have always been the pinnacle for the sport of wrestling but we shouldn’t be cracking on curling and golf. At least in both of those sports you can drink and/or smoke while participating, and only very marginal fitness is required… They are perfect for my next endeavor!

    Team Hand Ball for sure! How many people
    Even know what it is?!
