World Wrestling Culture/Politics:   FILA Wrestling to attend July 12-14 meetings in Africa with African Olympic members.  The sport of wrestling is big in Africa, but especially in Senegal where big matches with top wrestlers can draw more than 25,000 spectators.  It is thought that much can be learned from Africa on a world level and how they promote, market, and stage many level of wrestling events for the African government to unite communities through the sport of wrestling.

World Wrestling Quote of the Week   From First Vice President of the Russian Wrestling Federation (Georgy Bryusov) on the new rules from FILA.  "The presentation was successful.  One of the first matches at the World University Games had an 18-11 match."

One of the arguments against the new fila rules was that it would reduce the number of medal-winning countries.  To disprove the argument at the World University Games on July 12th, over 12 countries won medals (Russia, Iran, United States, Moldova, Romania, Mongolai, Kazakhstan, Japan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine & Turkey)

# of Days Left until September 8th, Olympic Decision on Wrestling in the 2020 Olympic Games 

World Wrestling Quote of the Week From Dan Gable in WIN Magazine:

Dan Gable: “It’s time to kick it in the butt right now. There are peaking and timing factors that will help us win the vote and eventually become a core sport again. I noticed that we are starting to get a little cocky. We just had these good four months and feel like we’ve won. We haven’t yet. As a leader, I know we can’t just coast. In wrestling you can score any time, any second because you are supposed to be engaged. Regarding FILA, one of the problems is that there is a difference in cultures of those on the board.”  For the full interview click here
