Russian Wrestling Coach Claims Masculinity-Hating Gays to Blame for Sport Getting Cut from Olympics

Russian wrestling coach Vladimir Uruimagov claimed on Tuesday that the decision by the International Olympic Committee’s Executive Board to cut wrestling from the 2020 Olympic games is the doing of gay activists who want to wipe masculinity from the world," R sport reports:

Wrestling“If they expel wrestling now, that means that gays will soon run the whole world,” said Uruimagov, saying it was "a blow to masculine origins. Uruimagov added: "It turns out this committee is headed by representative of these [sexual] minorities."

Uruimagov added: "It is necessary for millions around the world who understand that this is a man’s sport and who understand the need to continue the human race to go out and explain their position to the Olympic Committee. We should prove and explain that in any other case there is no future."

  1. Talk about a repressed closeted homophobe. That is the most ridiculous reasoning ive ever heard.

  2. Pretty sure every gay bear I know is extremely upset wrestling has been cut.

    Gays love wrestling!

  3. Wow, little does he know that I only watch men's wrestling and men's gymnastics when it comes to the Olympics

  4. Absurd. Most gay men I know love to watch masculine guys wrestling on a mat. Incredible lack of reasoning ability on display for all to see.

  5. Another baseless uniformed attack. If anything gays, many who eschew femininity, would seek to do away with male figure skating. See repeated attacks on Johnny Weir from gay men.

  6. It's only real wrestling if you're taking a metal chair to the front of your face. Greco-roman is like baby wrestling for babies.

  7. Too much vodka can be brutal on the brain. The coach is insane.

    What Gay in his right mind doesn't love to watch Olympic wrestling? All the different positions highlighting butts and crotches. It's wonderful.

    The coach must have graduated from the same academy as Rick.

  8. Delusional, and classic repressed homophobe. Face it, gays love to watch wrestling. Heck, many of us were wrestlers in school. And many of our first sexual encounters started with some friendly "wrasslin". And straight non-wrestlers think wrestling IS "gay." No doubt they've said this to this oaf and struck a nerve. It does tell you the extent of the corrupt money grubbing Russian Orthodox church's campaign to vilify gays...just as they did jews, poles, etc. decades before. Russians simply can't exist without having a minority group to vilify and blame for all their shortcomings vodka can't soothe.

  9. The real reason, I heard, is because the venal Olympic committee isn't able to sell enough tickets to people to watch wrestling. Dollars run the Olympics, and the athletes are just meat to the committee.
    This coach is nuts, as many have stated, most gay men LOVE to watch wrestling. Real Greek naked wrestling would be a BIG draw!!

  10. Yeah because gay men don't enjoy semi-naked men wrestling around grabbing ass and crotch?
    Russian Coach=IDIOT!

  11. The whole country of Russia has jumped the shark. What a joke it is.

    Posted by: Randy | Feb 14, 2013 2:14:14 PM

  12. Yes, because there is nothing gay guys hate more is a homoerotic sport like wrestling! Outside of figure skating, it's the gayest sport ever! This guy is taking his anger out at the wrong people.

  13. That coach should be thanking gay men for supporting wrestling. He obviously has his head up his butt (I think that's a wrestling move).

    Posted by: Jack M | Feb 14, 2013 2:15:30 PM

  14. Gee, a homophobic Russian idiot. Who'd have ever thought?! Um, wrestling is one of the most homoerotic sports around, what with all the male on male grappling.

    It's also one of the few sports that relies entirely on the strength and skill of the competitors instead of on often expensive high-tech equipment or clothing. THAT is why it's being removed from the Olympics really, because there aren't clothing and gear sponsors to give the Olympic Committee $$$$$ like the Golf sponsors will. If he wants to blame someone or something for this, he might give greed a try. Golf?! No doubt it requires skill but it's possibly the most boring thing on earth to watch. But its sponsors are so very very wealthy and willing to spread the money around.

  15. Most ridiculous reasoning. I don't know one gay that doesn't want to watch two guys wrestle.

  16. We will soon run the world? I'm repeatedly amazed at the awesome power we wield.

  17. LOOOOOVE watching olympic wrestling! if these isolated idiots would take the time to have conversation w/a few gay men they might actually gain valuable allies

  18. When I was in high school, I was on the wrestling team and I got boners while wrestling - awkward, but not something that would make me against having wrestling in the Olympics.

    Maybe the communists are behind this, or the French who are inherently effeminate.

    Posted by: Yellow Dog | Feb 14, 2013 2:37:53 PM

  19. Um...is there something--anything--NOT gay about wrestling? I'm trying to think. I mean, do you ever hear a straight guy say,"Hey, I'm going to pick up a case of Bud and a singlet. Do you want anything?" Honestly, I'd be perfectly happy if they cut everything *except* male wrestling, male gymnastics, and male swimming. Although when coachsky speaks of "a blow to masculine origins," I'd have to plead guily on that count. Love giiving blows to masculine origins. ;-)

  20. Oh dear. It would be easier to argue that the IOC was motivated by homophobia, than to try arguing that they are appeasing gays. This guy doesn't know jack.

    Posted by: Lars | Feb 14, 2013 3:04:11 PM

  21. Don't be silly Vladimir. We don't want the Olympic committee to drop wrestling! It's the skinny, straight, intimidated committee members that do.

    We love wrestlers. In fact wrestlers squirting their seed all over each other only means they have more with which to impregnate the nearest ladies who will in turn drop fresh babies all over the world. And very possibly those new babies will be a lot smarter than you are.

    Posted by: UFFDA | Feb 14, 2013 3:11:01 PM

  22. If the IOC has really dropped wrestling from the Olympics, that's the dumbest thing since the rule requiring swimmers to be photographed only from the shoulders up.

    Posted by: Bill Michael | Feb 14, 2013 3:23:07 PM

  23. Is the coach kidding? Gays love wrestling, gymnastics and rugby. Stop grasping for straws! Anyway the people who own the banks rule the world not gays. Sheesh!

    Posted by: Brian | Feb 14, 2013 3:33:19 PM

  24. Okay...let me get this right: The Olympics is removing a sport where hot, big, muscly-bound butch men in skin-tight, minimal lycra union suits roll around on a matt floor, grabbing at each other's bums and crotches in order to get the perfect grip to flip them over on their backs, press their groins over the head and shoulders of the opponent in order to pin them to the floor...all to the cheers of an audience...and the sport is going away because of the gays?

    What part of gay does this man truly not get?

  25. I can only hope one day we will run the world, peace worldwide!
