In a story for American Public Media’s “Marketplace,” Victor Matheson, an associate professor of economics at the College of the Holy Cross, commented on the International Olympic Committee’s move to drop wrestling as an Olympic sport.
Expressing concern about the impact of the decision on the future of the sport, he said “Every kid who’s ever been an athlete always imagines himself playing in the big game. If you don’t see the great wrestlers standing on the podium, getting that gold medal draped over their necks, it’s hard to imagine yourself being the great star and the great athlete.”
