Wrestling removed from Olympics

Wrestling has been dropped from the 2020 Olympic Games following a performance review of all the sports at the 2012 London Olympics.

The International Olympic Committee made the decision after reviewing of all 26 sports at the London 2012 Olympics.

The International Olympic Committee will meet again in Buenos Aries in September which gives wrestling a slim chance to be reinstated, however it is thought there is little chance of the decision being changed so soon.

Wrestling has been part of the Olympic structure ever since Athens in 1896, except from Paris 1900.
