USOC's Blackmun Weighs In On IOC's Decision To Drop Wrestling
Published February 12, 2013
Reaction to the IOC’s decision continues to be largely negative on Twitter. SI.com’s Michael Farber wrote, “IOC blows it. Ditching wrestling is like getting rid of one of the Original Six.” The L.A. Times’ Bill Plaschke: “A real stunner here..what is IOC thinking?..wrestling was one of first Olympic sports around 700 BC.” KNBR-AM’s Damon Bruce: “Dropping wrestling from the Olympics is like dropping race cars from the Indianapolis 500. It makes no sense at all.” Meanwhile, many Twitter users have begun tagging their pro-wrestling tweets with #SaveOlympicWrestling (THE DAILY).
