Now here's something the United States, Russia, and Iran can all agree on: Wrestling should stay in the Olympics. After the International Olympic Committee announced last month that the sport will likely be dropped after 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad both pledged to fight to keep wrestling in the Olympics.
That cause is one Americans are sympathetic to as well — even on Wall Street. Mike Novogratz, president of Fortress Investment Group, wrestled for Princeton as an undergraduate. Now he's leading the campaign to save the sport's place in the Olympics.
