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."

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

  2. Morey says

    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.

  3. qj201 says

    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.

  4. Bollux says

    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.

  5. Derrick from Philly says

    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.

  6. William says

    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.

  7. Gordon says

    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!!

  8. SFshawn says

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

  9. BETTY says

    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.

  10. Jack M says

    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).

  11. Caliban says

    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.

  12. singletFACE says

    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

  13. Yellow Dog says

    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.

  14. JJ says

    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. 😉

  15. Lars says

    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.

  16. UFFDA says

    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.

  17. Bill Michael says

    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.

  18. Brian says

    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!

  19. Jay says

    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?

  20. sam says

    I think the Olympics are being destroyed by the inclusion of ridiculous non-sports like golf and beach volleyball. The Olympics were designed to be a celebration of male bodies and masculinity, not some idiots jumping around on sand hitting a ball over a net.

    The inclusion of women has de-valued the thing that we gay guys hold dear – masculinity.

  21. rayrayj says

    As a gay man, I do not like to watch one man on his hands and knees as another man kneels behind him and leans over him. I especially don’t like it when they are rolling around on the floor rubing and grinding against each other, grunting, moaning and working up a sweat. Their arms and legs get all tangled up and and they’re breathing hard…It just upsets me to no end. By the way does anybody have a napkin?

  22. LYLE says

    Whatever SAM/RICK.

    The inclusion of SAM/RICK has de-valued the thing that we gay guys hold dear – intelligence.

  23. Onnyjay says

    Let me get this, um, straight: Gay men, who adore and pursue masculinity in all its testosterone-rich forms, were responsible for ditching Olympic wrestling?? Soviet double-think at its most wretchedly twisted. Clearly the gentleman is so deeply, aggressively clueless that he should immigrate to America and join the Tea-Baggers.

  24. MateoM says

    So Sam is Rick’s new alias. Good to know.

    Make sure everyone ignores the troll Sam from now on.

  25. Keith says

    The Gays also made the Pope retire and before that they made all the priests abuse the kiddies; plus etc fill in the details here–; those Gays sure rule the world!! If they did you can be sure wrestling would be compulsory and naked.

  26. andrew says

    Gay men are responsible for getting rid of the most homoerotic sport that exists? That guy is a total MORON!!!

  27. ajax2828 says

    I love the reasoning: gays = removal of wrestling from the Olympics = extinction of the human race. I am fascinating that so many homophobic people believe that allowing gay marriage (and apparently a demise of male-on-male wrestling) will turn everyone in the world gay so that the entire human population will no longer be able to reproduce.

  28. HOCKEYJOCK says

    …that makes NO sense. It’s my favourite Olympic sport to watch ; I’m sure probably 50% of the supporting audience is comprised of gay men, haha. Gymnastics ain’t bad either – those are some fit dudes.

    Besides, isn’t Russia’s national symbol the bear? Gaaaaayyyyy! Lol.

  29. Diogenes Arktos says

    @Johnny: “I can only hope one day we will run the world, peace worldwide!”

    Have you ever read the comments on a gay blog?

  30. Mark says

    Yeah. Us gays hate da wrestling. Something about those costumes that leave nothing to the imagination, those sweaty, muscular male bodies in close contact. It just puts us off. What a ‘tard.

  31. J says

    I’ve met many different types of gays, but never one who didn’t like to watch hot muscled men wrestling around.

  32. Andy says

    It’s the gayest male sport ever! You can totally see their goodies in those outfits. Plus, they’re groping each other. It would be stupid for a gay man to cut wrestling from the Olympics.
