I've got a cousin who is into wrestling. He is small for his age, and not interested in any other sport, because he feels inadequate. However, his size has been an asset for him in wrestling, as he is very flexable and good at it. I know nothing about wrestling, but he is even good with some above his weight class. I would hope he would be able to participate in the Olympics since it is his goal. Sad that one so dedicated and determined, rising above his disabilities, cannot try to achieve his dream. *Wir, I couldn't agree more, goff?? I'd rather watch grass grow too.

Wrestling is my favorite event in the olympics to watch, if they take it away I probably won't watch the olympics at all. Replacing wrestling with golf? Come on I'd rather watch the grass grow than watch a bunch of rich people chase around a little white ball, anyone can train there dog to do that. Wrestlers are real dedicated athletes with true grit and determination!! Sorry I can't say that for someone that chases balls around or drives a machine around a predetermined track. Huh, wonder if this is a sign that the world is getting even more lazy.

It will be back, we are organizing funds to be used to send our representatives to Europe this fall to try to persuade along with other representatives in the world. They say wrestling is boring and does not bring enough money, but they are adding golf.... It just shows you that this world has lost it's mind.
