Wrestling Out of Olympics?

Few people realize what a political racket the Olympics have become, no longer about sports but base crass commercialism.

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.
The board voted after reviewing a report by the IOC program commission report that analyzed 39 criteria, including television ratings, ticket sales, anti-doping policy and global participation and popularity. With no official rankings or recommendations contained in the report, the final decision by the 15-member board was also subject to political, emotional and sentimental factors.

So go solo, and make wrestling up there with World Cup style sports, independent of the Olympics.  Feel Free To Email This To Three Friends.
