That's crazy.

ETA:

quote:

Wrestling was voted out from a final group that also included modern pentathlon, taekwondo and field hockey, officials familiar with the vote told The Associated Press. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the voting details were not made public.


Dropped it over Taekwondo and Field Hockey? Are you serious, Clark? And when did the IOC get so hard up that they have to start cutting programs from the Olympics?

If there is even one X games type event in 2020, this is a disgrace.

They're talking of putting Wakeboarding in over Wrestling. Wow... Golf and Rugby will be in starting in 2016. Hopefully Baseball/Softball gets the other slot because the other 5 nominees suck dick.

Oh I guarantee you that fruity boy BMX bike riding is in Jack......How they can justify canning one of the sports that the original ancient Olympics was built on is crazy.

1) They were added to give European countries something to dominate

2) Can't get rid of them b/c they're too popular w/ the female TV audience

Just one more decision that tips the balance in favour of the IOC being the most corrupt organization in the history of the world...so they are adding Golf which many consider an prohibitively expensive sport and need to drop one...
frick THE IOC (BTW I golf)
