Wrestling Removed from Olympics...Taekwondo Next?

            The Olympics have announced the removal of wrestling as an official sport for the next Games. Outrage quickly followed, as wrestling is one of the original Olympics sports. Speculation is that the Olympics is slowly attempting to remove all "violent" sports from their roster, as seen by years of attempted removal of boxing.             

 Taekwondo is also facing elimination. The president of South Korea has personally plead to the Commission to allow the sport to remain. Taekwondo has been a contender for elimination every single year since the it's debut in 1988.
