Why the Olympics and America Needs Wrestlers?
One former wrestler’s unselfish
courageous determination can best illustrate the value in answering
this question. Former New Jersey all-state wrestler, Jeremy Glick
with two fellow passengers aboard Flight 93 (Tom Burnett and Todd
Beamer) heeded the famous 9/11 call "Lets Roll", and proceeded to
"wrestle" on behalf of us all, against terrorism. Sports Illustrated
writer Rick Reily said it best; "At a time like this, sports are
trivial. But what the best athletes can do -- keep their composure
amid chaos, form a plan when all seems lost, and find the guts to
carry it out -- may be why the Capitol isn't a charcoal pit". Sports
may be trivial but the lessons and courage learned through them can
become the foundation to monumental achievements.

HISTORY OF WRESTLING
Wrestling dates back to prehistoric times and is considered the
world’s oldest and purest sport. In French caves, there are drawings
reported to be 15,000 to 20,000 years old depicting wrestlers in
various holds and leverage positions.· Wrestling was introduced to
the Olympic Games in Greece about 708 BC. The Greek philosopher
Plato was an accomplished wrestler. Native Americans wrestled for
sport long before the first Europeans arrived.
Nine of our Presidents were wrestlers. Washington and Lincoln were
considered to be excellent at the sport, both holding various
championship titles. Others were Jackson, Taylor, Grant, Arthur,
Taft, T. Roosevelt, and Coolidge.
