Wrestling is Out?

Wrestling is being scrubbed from the Olympics.   Apparently it's a victim of dwindling popularity.   Being considered to replace wrestling are sport climbing, wake boarding, roller sports and - wait for it - wushu.   In case you're wondering, here is Jet Li's championship wushu performance from 1978.

If the ancient Greeks did it, up on mount Olympus, shouldn't wrestling be kept on the roster if only for old times sake?

Another sport must be a part of Olympics. It has been played for centuries and every country has well-known players. Current contenders will be Harper, Obama, Cameron of Britain and many more. There is a good chance that Harper will win. Name of the game is ‘flip-flops’.

That's not going to happen, LD. Nobody could ever build a stadium big enough to hold the bodies.
