A sport that almost no one cares about, or watches, would seem to be the perfect Olympic event--dressage, sport climbing, target shooting, etc--one that couldn't garner a paying audience to cover the expenses of putting it on otherwise. But, one of the traditional competitions (it was in Athens' first Olympics of 1896) has been jettisoned
Wrestling has been dropped from the 2020 Games to make way for a new sport.
The International Olympic Committee's executive board made its decision after assessing the performance of all 26 sports at the London Games.
Wrestling may yet gain a reprieve upon review of the decision, but will be up against baseball/softball, squash, karate, sport climbing, wakeboarding, wushu and roller sports. What are the odds?
