Re: Wrestling cut from 2020 Olympics program
About equestrian. Having it in OG raises the question about why motorsports couldn't be included in Olympics. IOC have said motorsports can't be in Olympics because competitiors physics aren't the deciding factor there. Well, that can be said about equestrian, too. Actually, a racing driver must be very fit.
With single-spec cars, race would be about driver's skills, not about who has the best equipment. Not that I'd really want to have motorsports in Olympics. A racing circuit would be too expensive to build for the Olympics. (Btw. Rio Olympic village will be built at the site of former Jacarepagua F1 circuit.) Karting would be the only suitable motorsport for Olympics. And for the big names of motorsport, Olympics would be only an exho, if they even raced there.
