International Olympic Committee: Reinstate wrestling as a core olympic sport.

Wrestling is a popular and traditional sport that has been contested at the olympics since its inception in 708 BC. Wrestling has a long and rich olympic history, with many heroes and special olympic moments. Children all over the world participate in wrestling and dream about winning olympic gold. The olympics are very important to the sport of wrestling, winning a gold medal is viewed as the ultimate accomplishment in a sport void of a superbowl, world cup, or world series. To remove wrestling would remove part of the Olympic spirit itself.
