Wrestling's Olympic future on the line


The Sports Ministry has requested the International Olympic Committee to retain wrestling after its Executive Board announced in February that the discipline would not be included in the category of core sports for the 2020 Games.

Wrestling, which has been a main event since the first Games held in Athens in 1886, will be competing against squash and baseball for the last spot on the Olympic program.

The full IOC membership will meet in Buenos Aires on the 8th of September and will vote on which of the three sports to add to the 2020 line up.
