Wrestlers react to eliminating the sport in the Olympics

For high school phenom Chance Marsteller his biggest goal could be taken away if the International Olympic Committee goes through with its plans and cuts wrestling by 2020.

Marsteller says wrestling is his life and he isn’t exaggerating, throughout his undefeated career he has never lost a bout and has already started Olympic training in Colorado.

The notion to get rid of wrestling echoes throughout the Keystone State from Penn State to York College; they all agree the sport should stay.

The IOC  has based its reasoning by comparing  it to other sports with TV ratings, ticket sales, anti-doping policy and global partnership. However, the wrestling community feels this fight is far from over.
