That's asinine. Baseball was taken out of the Olympics does that mean it will never be competitive?

Men's wrestling is easily as competitive as men's judo. But women's wrestling has been an Olympic sport only for the last decade; women's judo became an Olympic sport in '88. So it'll take another ten years (ie it takes a generation or about 20 years) for women's wrestling to catch up to women's judo.

"Most" doesn't mean all, even if you aren't just talking out of your ass. Any actual proof that Sara was an "ex-Judoka's who couldn't hang at the top level"?
