The International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Tuesday opted to remove wrestling from the programme of sports at the 2020 Games, a spokesman said.
The decision, taken at the IOC's executive committee meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland, means wrestling now faces a fight against seven other sports for inclusion at the Games, the location of which will be decided later this year.
The sport, which includes freestyle and greco-roman wrestling, still has a slim chance of regaining its berth but, if the example of softball and baseball are anything to go by, it is unlikely to be successful.
