Hall of Fame La Crosse Wrestler Frustrated with Olympic Politics
Don't think for a minute that the idea of dumping wrestling from the Olympics will happen without a fight. Not if Doug LeClair has anything to do with it. LeClair, a longtime wrestling coach in La Crosse schools, has just recently learned he'll be entering the National Wrestling Hall of Fame this year. He plans on adding fuel to the fire of the outrage to the International Olympic Committee's recommendation to dump wrestling from the games by 2020
Final decision on wrestling will come later this year. Currently, over 70 countries send athletes to the summer games for wrestling, one of the oldest sports in the olympics.
