The decision was made this week in Switzerland to cut wrestling from the 2020 Olympic Games, eliminating a sport that has its roots in ancient Greece and has been present every modern Olympic Games since 1896. Once considered one of the “26 Core Sports,” the Olympic committee cut the core sports down to 25, which means wrestling now needs to compete in order to be a part of the games. Though that gives them a shot at returning, the Associated Press speculates that it will be unlikely so soon after elimination.
