Wrestling has been dropped from the 2020 Olympic Games.

The International Olympic Committee, which is in charge of the games, made the decision in order to make way for a new sport.

But there is a chance wrestling can make it back on to the list, but it has to beat other sports that are also trying to make it to the 2020 games.

The committee will meet again in September to hold another vote.

This time to decide which one of seven different sports will be allowed to take part.

Wrestling will now be up against baseball/softball, squash, karate, sport climbing, wakeboarding, wushu and roller sports.
