Tough to have high TV ratings when its never on. If that’s one of the criteria half of the “sports” would be gone. Wrestling was one of the few remaining actual sports. Seems the IOC is trying to turn the Olympics into a more mainstram X Games. While its a niche sport for wrestlers and parents tradition should not be overlooked. Golf should never have gotten in and wrestling never eliminated. And I loves me some golf, just don’t think its worthy of a Gold Medal.
The sports should have something to do with historical daily or at least occasional living activities. (They should add some rodeo events and get rid of hoops and golf.)
