Save Olympic Wrestling

Earlier this year, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) sent shockwaves through the worldwide wrestling community by announcing that wrestling would be dropped from the Olympic Games.  Despite being one of the world’s oldest sports and steeped in rich Olympic tradition, the sport of wrestling is set to vanish from the Olympics in the year 2020.  As expected, the international wrestling community was outraged, and a worldwide coalition to save Olympic wrestling quickly sprung into action.

 As the IOC is now finding out, the wrestling community is strong and worldwide.  While the fight to have wrestling reinstated is not yet won, the future is starting to look secure.  In order to drum up further support for the fight to keep wrestling in the Olympic Games, the USA Wrestling Federation has put together a fascinating documentary about the sport of wrestling.  You can check out the complete trailer below. 

If you have ever trained in martial arts, of any kind, then you will certainly be able to understand the wrestling community's stance.  Wrestling is a sport that can transcend political and international boundaries.  It is sport that has the power to change lives for the better.  If you find yourself inspired by this documentary please share it with your friends.  Help spread awareness of wrestling's fight to stay in the Olympic Games.
