In preparation for FILA's presentation to the IOC for wrestling's reinstatment into the Olympic Games, FILA is celebrating May as World Wrestling Month! Numerous events are being hosted around the globe in appreciation of one of the world's oldest (and greatest) sports! While my contribution may be limited, my website, 49 North Wrestling will be posting a match of the day for the month of May that showcases those from wrestling's storied past, or perhaps even just some exciting action. 

Feel free to share anything you find that showcases the sport of Wrestling! Together, we will make sure the sport of wrestling retains it's rightful spot in the Olympic Games!

Day 3's match of the day is from the 2012 Women's World Championships held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. 2008 World Champion and 2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist Clarissa Chun (USA) takes on 2012 World Champion Vanesa Kaladzinskaya (Belarus)! This match has everything: wacky throws, wacky scrambles, a controversial ending that is made right despite a defective score clock.........you know..........just for drama.

Since this movement has the support of the UFC and Bellator, could we get this thread at the top of the forum for the month?

Please share whatever you like. I don't want this to just be me. The sport of wrestling needs your support and love!

Look at these monsters and tell me another sport is more Olympic than wrestling. Your argument is invalid.

Still one of the best highlights around, even after all these years. Loaded with mind-boggling throws, scrambles, etc.

Would be cool to see some of the pros with a history in wrestling give their thoughts on the sport, where it's heading, what it means to them, etc. in this thread!

Today's match of the day features a 20 year old Kurt Angle (USA) in blue taking on Arawat Sabejew (USSR) at the 1988 Espoir World Cup! Sabejew would later emigrate to Germany, winning the World Championships in 1994 at 100 kg. Angle went on to win the 1995 World Championships, beating Sabejew in the final. Of course, Angle also famously won the 1996 Olympic Gold Medal, Sabejew would take bronze at the same event.
