The Olympic folks are considering adding 3-on-3 basketball and BMX, but wrestling is on the chopping block?
Wrestling is one of the original olympic sports, and it looks like it won't be around much longer.
On the flip side, there are now reports that the International Olympic Committee is fielding offers for new sports to add, which include things like 3-on-3 basketball and BMX.
Golf and rugby have already been added to the 2016 Rio games.
I have no problem with tweaking the Olympics now and then to reflect the evolution of sporting culture across the globe. However, I don't think it's necessary to get rid of some of the staples of the Olympic games.
Wrestling is still a hugely popular amateur sport in many countries, and is a major component of MMA, one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Go ahead and add sports to the Olympics if you must, but save wrestling. It's the right thing to do.
