Grappling: New Sport With Ancient Roots
Wrestling, considered to be the oldest sport, has a new brother, the sport of Grappling. Earlier this year, Grappling was officially sanctioned by FILA, the organizing body that oversees various forms of international wrestling competition. USA Wrestling quickly followed suit. The first world championship took place in September in Turkey ? with the US team sweeping all nine gold medals, writes RevWrestling.com's Mark Palmer.
