Don’t Drop Wrestling from Olympics

I am writing in response to the Feb. 13 article about wrestling being cut from the Olympics, which details the IOC’s recent decision to leave the sport off of the Olympic program in 2020. Wrestling belongs in the Olympics, as it embodies every ideal of the Games. Not only can the sport certainly lay claim, along with running, to being the heart of the ancient Games, but it also is at the core of the modern Games — the dream of every young wrestler in the world.
