On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman comments on the recommendations made this week by the Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as part of their Olympic Agenda 2020 plan to implement many changes in the Olympic movement.
In particular, analyzed is how the proposed changes to the process of determining which sports are on the Olympic program, and expanding the number of sports while keeping the total number of athletes in the Olympics constant, may result in more cuts to Olympic wrestling, and possibly the entire elimination of one of the styles of international wrestling. Also discussed is the continued failures of the leaders of international wrestling to govern and promote the sport properly.
In addition, the absence, in the recommendations which have been announced so far, of any specific measures to enforce anti-discrimination policies is criticized.
Some of these recommendations for the Olympic Agenda 2020 were announced Thursday, October 23, on an international media teleconference call with IOC president Thomas Bach. We also present the complete audio of that teleconference, including the question-and-answer portion of it with international journalists.
