Olympic Wrestling Must Stay – “Let’s Keep Wrestling…” was the message to the IOC

Posted May 12, 2013 by in – Webster defines wrestling as a form of combat sport involving grappling type techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins and other grappling holds. It is also a word often use to describe an individual’s mental battle with one’s self. Of all the sports, wrestling is a miniature interpretation of life. It is a struggle, a triumph, a victory and defeat which takes place in a circle. It is an individual sport but it can also be a team sport. A wrestler cannot physically get better with out wrestling another wrestler. It is a test of physical strength, a test of skill, agility, endurance and most important of all mental toughness. A wrestler can only build mental toughness by experiencing victory, defeat, struggle and overcoming adversity.
Wrestling is life. It is the one sport which helped create the rest of the sports we have to day. It is a competition. Man vs man. And taking the sport out of the Olympic games is like eliminating a big part of human history and it is a disrespect and a disgrace to the world of sports.
