Save Wrestling

I realize that most of you really have no interest in this topic but I am posting this because my family is passionate about wrestling. It was a very important part of my own personal development as a young man through wrestling from junior high school to 3 years in college. There is no sport that compares to the discipline and work that is required to be a good wrestler. I was stunned when I heard that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has recommended that it be dropped as a sport in the Olympics. Wrestling was part of the original Olympics and has always been in the Olympic games. So in the interest of doing my part to try and preserve wrestling, you can watch this 4 minute video and send an email or tweet to the IOC and tell them to keep wrestling in the Olympics. BTW – our last American Olympic champion, Jordan Burroughs, who is a graduate from here in Lincoln, Nebraska, is a young man who loves Jesus Christ as Savior. He continues to work hard toward another world championship and has a goal to repeat as Olympic Champion in the next Olympics (if they have wrestling.)
