Bullying

What I have learned about bullying is that some people have it a whole lot harder then others. Everyone’s story is different. We all have different experiences and life styles. One can not judge another over something they may just know the tip of the iceberg about. Unfortunately not all of us exactly have discretion or self control to notice certain people attributes that may or may not be the same on themselves. This can create tension or even a spark in the mind that they are inferior and do not have your life.  Then the ball gets  rolling and more people join and the deeper it gets the less a bystander will stand up. Then rountines can start and someones feelings end up getting hurt.

Wrestling out of the Olympics? Blogging Challenge #2

Blogging Challenge #2 

Taking wrestling, a beloved sport, out of the Olympics is a stunning blow to wrestlers worldwide.  Wrestling is a sport in which two athletes battle to subdue each other with only their body and no equipment.  Why this sport has been eliminated from the Olympics is found mind boggling, according to Khasan Baroev of Russia, a past greco-roman champion.

Wrestling is an ancient sport of the Olympics.  It`s first appearance was in the 708 BC Olympic games. It is old and classic but also youthful, exciting and riveting.  This proves it deserves to be in over a hobby unworthy of the name, sport.  Some of those examples could be wake boarding, golf and table tennis.  Other than running wrestling is considered one of the most ancient sports.

Another reason why wrestling should be kept is that it is home to many countries, cultures and religions.  This can be proven by the fact that 29 different countries received medals at the last Olympics.  With first hand experience I can confidently tell you that at tournaments and practices that I have attended, they have been extremely ethnically divers.

The IOC`s ( International Olympic Committee) decision was not only devastating to wrestlers but mixed martial artists as well.  This will cause a ripple effect, affecting the world`s largest rapidly growing sport.  Without MMA`s largest contributor, wrestling, it will have to fight an uphill battle for popularity.

Someone might tell you that wrestling ranked “low” in audience with a maximum of 58.5 million viewers and an average of 28 million.  This may be true but it is most definitely not the least popular or the most deserving to get the boot.  The most deserving sport in called the is modern pentathlon, a sport that combines fencing, horse riding, swimming, running and shooting. This sport had a maximum 33.5 million viewers and an average 12.5 million.  This clearly proves that wrestling belongs.

So for wrestlers, mixed martial artists and people of the world… Save our ancient sport.
