John Irving Weighs In

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if mentioning the part about wrestling to the death was a seller for wrestling. Overall Irving separates the two main narratives; FILA and it's overall leadership role in wrestling, and the IOC and its shady business practices. It seems if wrestling wants back in the Olympics, then they will have to do what it takes to appease the IOC, but then they still have the broader problems with FILA regarding the overall direction of the sport.


As an aside, I saw where Sergio Berlusconi, Italy's corrupt President and media/sports owner, recently said publicly that people shouldn't frown so much on bribery. And I'm not even seeing a big uproar over it. Puts the IOC stuff into context.
