Wrestling, which was in the first modern Olympics of 1896, is on the verge of being dropped from the Games. The IOC recommended that the sport be excluded from 2020 and it is unlikely to get a reprieve when that is voted on in Buenos Aires in September.

It means a reprieve for modern pentathlon and taekwondo which were seen as at greater risk in order to make room for a new sport.
