Golf has no business in the Olympics. Neither does tennis, really. If the Olympics are not at least arguably the biggest event in your sport, it shouldn't be on the program. It becomes just another tournament. In wrestling, it is the culmination of four years of hopes and dreams.

The IOC have lost their fricking minds...
I remember the program started in inner city NY or Chicago that was offering young people a way out of poverty and crime through wrestling...

The IOC is dead to me.

ETA: Golf? Tennis? Soccer?

Seems like the IOC has completely forgotten about their purpose. Shamefull.

The best part is that the IOC could have dropped the incredibly corrupt boxing; a sport that was completely discredited by bribe scandals in London last summer.


I don't mind the inclusion of team sports like soccer, basketball, ice hockey etc. They generate revenue and are usually much more entertaining than some of the other Olympic disciplines.

Horse trotting & prancing is serious business y'all


Ribbon twirling & synchronized swimming is where it's at though
