They were deciding between wrestling and modern pentathlon, and went with modern pentathlon, what the hell.

Gotta have more snychronized swimming I suppose. There are tons of things I would take out before wrestling.

I don't know which way to respond...

1) Homophobic rednecks everywhere are cheering over this news

2) High school wrestlers everywhere are quitting, forcing the ringworm medcine business to lose millions

We could just stop recognizing people for their obsessively developed athletic skills and reward their countries for actual deserving things like "lowest poverty rate" but noooo, we want to see who can run the fastest...

Wow, can't believe they did that. Wrestling was one of the original olympic sports from ancient greece. Are they going to give up the Marathon next?

wrestling is one of the original olympic sports, and should therefore be sacred. This is an unspeakable tragedy.
