Preserve Olympic Wrestling Petition

February 13, 2013 Leave a comment

As some of you may know, the International Olympic Committee’s Executive Board voted yesterday to remove wrestling from its core 25 Olympic sports.  Wrestling has been placed in a pool of seven other sports — including baseball/softball, karate, roller sports, sport climbing, squash, wakeboarding and wushu — which will be considered by the Executive Board for inclusion in the 2020 Olympic program as an “additional” sport.

Here is a link to an excellent article which discusses the decision.  It provides some perspective on wrestling’s international governing  body, FILA, and its failure to support the sport effectively.  Most important, it hints at the potentially devastating impact on high-school and college wrestling.

If you are concerned, sign this petition.  You will have to register to sign.  We’ll provide updates as the situation develops.

Friday logistics planning

February 12, 2013 Leave a comment

Our current plan calls for wrestlers participating in the State Class L tournament to be bussed up from WHS and dropped off.

Wrestlers will need transportation back to Wilton (or to where ever they made arrangements to stay overnight) and then back and forth for Saturday weigh ins and competition.

The Dismissal list will be worked out later this week for participants

We need confirmation of all participants plans. JV and non-participating varsity must make their own arrangements.

Please let Coach Foldeak know ASAP.

Thank you.
