What Sport Has Been Cut From The Olympics?

The International Olympic Committee's executive board voted Tuesday to drop wrestling from the Olympics starting with the 2020 Games, a shocking decision that removes a sport that dates back to the start of the modern Olympics in 1896 and stretches back even further to the ancient Olympics. The board reviewed the 26 summer Olympics sports to remove one to make room to add another this year. It reportedly came down to three sports in a final round -- wrestling, field hockey and modern pentathlon, which combines fencing, horse riding, swimming, running and shooting -- and wrestling got the boot, with both freestyle and Greco-Roman being axed.
