Mock, Tar Heels weigh in on IOC's wrestling decision

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Sport has its fair share of fabled traditions, but none is more storied — nor ancient — than wrestling.

In a widely and vehemently criticized decision, the executive board of the International Olympic Committee rescinded wrestling’s Olympic status. (Daily Tar Heel)
