SOFIA, Bulgaria-A top wrestler from Bulgaria says he's returning his Olympic Gold Medal in wrestling to the International Olympic Committee because of its decision to drop the sport. Valentin Yordanov won the medal in the free-style category in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Bulgarians have won 16 Olympic titles, making wrestling the most successful sport in that country. Yordanov is a seven-time world champion and called on the wrestling federations around the world to help keep the sport in the Olympic Games.
