    HEY - I'm a lady and categorically oppose "ribbon twirling on a stick" as an Olympic sport. It's almost as bad as race walking and synchronized swimming. Save Olympic Wrestling -- watch great video @OlympicWrstlng: https://twitter.com/OlympicWrstlng

    Yeah thats a dern travesty. Shows that the IOC is only interested in selling tickets and getting TV ratings. Wrestling is not a big draw, granted. But ribbon twirling on a stick appeals to the ladies and that gets ratings.

    In an incredible turn of events the IOC has dropped wrestling from the 2020 Olympics!!

    They keep ribbon twirling on a stick, syncronized swimming and diving and a bunch of other goofy sports and drop wrestling. Stupidity abounds!
