Let's keep wrestling!

February 15, 2013

This was a week of surprising news on many fronts (the Pope retires!), but in Iowa, where wrestling is king, the news that wrestling may be dropped from the Olympics got the most attention. The Iowa high school wrestling state tournament is going on as I write this, and a family friend from Indianola is just one win away from the finals.

As a former wrestling cheerleader, I'm going to the mat to overturn this dumb decision by the Olympic committee. Here is a note I got with ways to help.

Thank you for signaling your support for wrestling in the Olympics. We are looking to organize Iowans around this issue in the coming weeks and will be in touch with more information soon.

Please tell your friends and family about www.LetsKeepWrestling.com and spread the word on Twitter (http://twitter.com/keepwrestling) and Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/LetsKeepWrestling).

Sincerely,

Governor Branstad Committee
