Wrestling dropped from 2020 Games

Wrestling, a sport that brought India medals from the last two Olympics, has been dropped from the 2020 Summer Games. The decision was made during the IOC executive board meeting on  Tuesday. The replacement sport will be announced in May. The sport, however, is part of  2016 Olympics in Rio. The other sports on the hit list, badminton, taekwondo and modern pentathlon, survived the axe. Wrestling will now make its bid for Olympic inclusion alongside softball, baseball, squash, karate, sport climbing, wakeboarding, wushu and rollersports at St Petersburg in May.
