Kurt Angle Comments on Olympic Committee Dropping Wrestling
Kurt Angle spoke to Fox Sports about the decision of International Olympic Committee dropping wrestling from the Olympics, starting in 2020.
“We’re going to fight this. They can’t just drop it. They’re keeping badminton and that sport where you jump on a trampoline, and they’re dropping wrestling. It’s just crazy. I don’t know what this world is coming to. Things are changing.”
Their report also notes that fellow gold medalist Dan Gable, who is the name-sake to the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum in Waterloo, Iowa, plans to fight the decision before the final vote by the IOC in September.
