By signing this petition, I add my support to Assemblyman Chris Brown’s efforts to encourage the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to reinstate Wrestling as an Olympic sport.
I am shocked that the IOC has targeted Wrestling, one of the original Olympic sports which can trace its Olympic heritage back to the ancient games in 780 B.C.
Like Asm. Brown, I urge the New Jersey Legislature to pass a resolution demanding that the IOC reconsider their indefensible decision to eliminate this character-building competition from the international athletic showcase provided by the Olympic Games.
I appreciate Asm. Brown’s taking a stand on this issue, and support efforts to move his resolution through the Legislature.
