Wrestling Fights for a Spot in 2020 Olympics The US, Iran and Russia have major differences, but they agree on one thing. Wrestling — a sport that dates back to ancient Greek tournaments that started it all — should be restored to the Olympic Games. In February, the International Olympic Committee stunned traditionalists and dropped wrestling from the summer games of 2020.

Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11.

Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
