    This is bullshit, it is a political F.U. to Iran because it is the only sport they are successful in.

    Saw that this am; it is a report from the AP. Now, wrestling has to reapply along with about a half dozen other sports.....like climbing. No indication that Iran targeted..........geez, if effects the largest countries in the world.......U.S, all European Countries........remenents of USSR, Japan, etc.

    This can't be true. Where did you hear it? Wrestling is the oldest sport in the world and one of the major sports of the ancient olympics. It was the final elimination event of the pentathalon when the field was down to two remaining competitors.

    Edit: I saw this on the Today Show and Yahoo News. Sucks! What little respect I had for the IOC is completely gone.

    Iran has had success in Judo and weightlifting as well, so I don't buy the conspiracy angle.
    However, it shows the Western European bias of the IOC.

    I can't believe that they would keep badmitten, basketball, takwando, or judo ahead of wrestling. What a bunch of garbage this is all about money. Maybe we need a fundraiser......Burroughs can collect pledges for each member of the committee he can find and blast double

    Modern Pentathlon had better connections in the IOC. Not sure if it is conspiracy driven but 100% Political. At least when they dropped baseball and softball they had solid reasoning

    This is f-ing ridiculous. I agree Spider, the IOC deserves no respect.
