A Dream of Wrestling–?

All life we do dream. We do motivate ourselves; work hard and sometimes dream become true. When I was young kid I saw Olympic wrestling on TV. After that I got a new dream that I would be on Olympic and win gold there. I signed up wrestling section. Hard working for 10 years I made to 1992 Olympics Barcelona. But I got short and won Bronze. After that I tried another shot and made at Atlanta 1996 and become short again at 4th. A Guy from North Korea Kim ILL won both Olympic.

wrestling clubI had 3 matches with him head to head and won 2 xs, his 1x but at the end he became champ, not me. But my Dream stayed with me. I still dream sometimes that one day Oroudjov will win Olympic Gold. I have 3 boys. All are wrestlers. Naryman is 3x NY state champ in His junior Cornell University, Vitali is 13 and George is 9 years old who just has started to wrestle. We wrestle everyday at my Wrestling club VHW. I speak with my sons about Olympic experience and about dream. If my kid would not win, I would train my Grandkids. I have the dream and want it become a truth.

But now we get some new Problems. Olympic Comity wants to drop wrestling after 2020. My family’s dream is breaking in parts and I think we are slowly going down. What we did, wrong! Have I chosen Wrong sport? My life is simple, my friends are wrestlers, and my heroes are wrestlers. Men, all I have got, is wrestling. Is it possible that wrestling remains after 2020? It is bothering me and that thing is taking my dream away from me. I Hope all will work out rightly and my family dream will live. I know I am not alone and have so many friends and coaches that have same dream. I am just waiting for some good news.
