Iowa Democratic congressman Dave Loebsack, in conjunction with a Republican congressman from Ohio, is hoping to get wrestling reinstated in the Olympics. The congressmen created a bipartisan resolution stating their disagreement with the decision to remove wrestling from the Olympics.

Loebsack said that he’s going to do everything he can in the U.S. and internationally to reinstate wrestling.

The International Olympic Committee announced that wrestling would be cut from the Olympics beginning in the 2020 games.
