"If they expel wrestling now, that means that gays will soon run the whole world," coach Vladimir Uruimagov said, calling the decision "a blow to masculine origins."
Uruimagov called for wrestling fans around the globe to petition the Olympic committee to reinstate wrestling, suggesting that the future of humanity was at stake.
"It turns out this committee is headed by representative of these minorities," clarifying that he meant sexual minorities.
"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," he said. "We should prove and explain that in any other case there is no future."
None of the 15 members of the IOC executive board have any background in gay rights movements, so Uruimagov's claim of a gay conspiracy is completely unfounded.
In fact, the board is chaired by IOC president Jacques Rogge, who was criticized by gay activists after the organization rejected calls to ban countries that discriminate against homosexuals.
Homosexuality was a criminal offense in the Soviet Union from 1934 until 1993, resulting in thousands of jail and asylum sentences for members of the lesbian and gay community.
Uruimagov is the coach of 2012 Greco-Roman gold medalist Alan Khugaev and 2004 gold medalist Khasan Baroev.
