What Does the IOC's Decision to Drop Wrestling Mean to You?

By

The International Olympic Committee's decision earlier this week to drop wrestling from the Summer Games beginning in 2020 came as a shock to many associated with the sport. After all, wrestling was one of nine events on the program when the modern Games resumed in 1896, and the Olympics are the ultimate dream for many high school wrestlers.

Wrestling has produced legends like Dan Gable, who is featured in the video above, and more recent heroes like Schuyler LaRue. On Thursday night, LaRue, a junior at Heritage (Maryville, Tenn.), saved a collapsed fan's life by administering CPR to him before the state tournament.

What are your thoughts on the IOC's decision? Whether you're a wrestler or not, we'd love to hear from you.
