URGENT: Squash and Karate catching up to wrestling in important Inside the Games Olympics poll – Vote NOW



USA Wrestling and FILA are asking the wrestling community worldwide to assist in an important poll about which sport should be in the Olympic Games.

Inside the Games, a leading Olympic website, is asking a simple question. Which sport do you think the IOC should vote to include on the Olympic programme for 2020?

Wrestling is up against the other seven sports who are seeking provisional Olympic status at the May International Olympic Committee meeting in St. Petersburg, Russia.

UPDATE: Wrestling jumped to an early lead in this poll, getting as high as 70% of the votes during the first few days. That is no longer the case.

As of Friday, May 10, Wrestling still leads with 39% of the vote, but Squash has closed to 30.9% of the vote and Karate is coming on strong at 23.9% of the vote.


This poll will run the entire month of May. Although wrestling came out of the gates strong, it must have the endurance to continue to be active all month long.

IT IS IMPORTANT FOR WRESTLING TO WIN THIS POLL. PLEASE TAKE TIME TO GO TO THIS WEBSITE AND VOTE!!!

Please go to this link to vote:

Please be patient if the website does not respond on your first try. There is a large volume of votes coming from all over the world. We ask that you make sure to vote TODAY and VOTE OFTEN, and SHARE this with your friends within wrestling.
