Wrestling Gets Reprieve

Iowans are celebrating the decision of the International Olympic Committee to keep wrestling in the Summer Games in 2020.  Former University of Iowa wrestling coach and grappling legend Dan Gable says he’s very happy with the decision by the IOC.  Congressman Bruce Braley released a statement in support of the decision, while Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds took to Twitter to say “We did it Iowa!”  Gable said the goal now is to become a top five “core sport” for the Olympics.
