I accept your challenge, mainly for recreation.
The aims for the olympic games are, "The goal of the Olympic Movement is to contribute to building a peaceful and better world by educating youth through sport practiced without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play."

Understand the words 'friendship' and 'fair'.

"A wrestling bout is a physical competition, between two (occasionally more) competitors or sparring partners, who attempt to gain and maintain a superior position."

Note the use of the words 'Superior position.

The olympic games are an international competion with the aims of international co-operation and friendship but with a competition like wrestling, two people want to physically defeat the other and take superior position; not exactly friendly.

Sports like running, swimming and many other are about people competing to get to a goal first or faster and doesn't require dirty fighting.

I really want to see someone challenge this, just because I really want to see what pointless arguments people come up with to oppose wrestling.
