The International Olympic Committee made a shocking move when it decided to cut wrestling from the 2020 Olympic Games.

That's bad news for the U.S. which has won 124 medals in the sport.

At the games in London, Team U.S.A.  won two gold medals in wrestling.

Wrestling will now have to compete against seven other sports vying to be part of the Olympics.

And a reminder...  the Winter Olympics will be broadcast right here on NBC Charlotte. Opening ceremonies begin February 7, 2014.
