Men's wrestling, once a powerhouse in this country, collected an average of eight medals in the seven Olympics Games from 1972 to 2000. The sport has averaged three in the last three Olympics.
The women have even outperformed the men in basketball despite the presence of NBA stars (albeit barely). Dating back to the 1976 Olympic, the men won five gold and two bronze medals, while the women won five golds, one silver and one bronze.
In soccer, the men didn't even qualify for the London Olympics and they haven't won an Olympic medal since 1904; American women have won four gold and one silver in the five Games since women were added to the Olympic program.
While everyone is gushing about the women's rising performance in the sports world, nobody is talking about the flip side. It has come at the expense of the men. Bias against women has been corrected with bias to men. The media, always quick to jump on the parade for the politically correct, isn't telling that story.
