Rulon Gardner AppearanceOlympic wrestling champ Rulon Gardner made an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” last night to talk about the International Olympic Committee’s executive board recommendation to remove wrestling from the Olympic games starting in 2020 as well as to discuss what the wrestling community is doing to fight this decision.

Leno was obviously not pleased with the decision either stating, “I invited them here because I’m really mad about this. When I think of baseball, you want to go to the World Series. When I think of football, you want to go to the Super Bowl. I think with the wrestling the only place you can go – unless it’s goofball TV wrestling – is the Olympics.”

Gardner was a 2000 Olympic gold medalist and a wrestling legend since he defeated the unstoppable Russian Alexander Karelin in the finals at the Sydney Games. He remarked, “High school and college wrestling is great, but the world comes together through the Olympics and through the sport of wrestling.”
