Sep 8, 2013 — Clay Durham of East Pennsboro Township started an online petition that quickly caught fire. It garnered more than 25,000 signatures in the first days.

“I fear removing [wrestling] from an Olympic sport will add fuel to the fires of school boards and colleges looking to cut costs,” he said at the time. “With no pro league and world championships not as high profile as the Olympics, it will hurt wrestling tremendously.”
