Wrestling is one of the oldest and elemental Olympic Sport. It's one competitive sport that were debuted in the ancient Olympic Games which is soley based on the athletes' ability to dominate one another with the strength of their arms and legs without the use of equipment.

Wrestling is a sport that requires strong mental and physical discilpline, as well as, a mutual respect between the competitors. These are things represent the foundamental Olympic values. 

It is important for those who believe and support the Olympic Movement to preserve and value Wrestling and keep it as one of the core sport for future Olympic Games.

      Wrestling is probably the oldest sport, and clearly one of the most important of the ancient Greek Olympic endeavors.

      I wrestled in High School and I wrestle now in Mixed Martial Arts. Actually, if you watch MMA, wrestling is the most important martial art. Further, along with Track & Field and Boxing, Wrestling is a basic human endeavor. In contrast, other sports are just contrived games. KEEP OLYMPIC WRESTLING!!

      Wrestling is one of the oldest sports. Wrestlers have only themselves to rely on; no props, no teammates. To excell in wrestling, an athlete needs physical fitness, strength, strategy, and discipline. To describe a wrestler is to describe the ultimate athlete. When I think of the Olympics, I picture two wrestlers engaged. Eliminating wrestling from the Olympics would be like eliminating the bald eagle as the symbol of the U.S.
