The International Olympic Committee just announced wrestling WON”T be axed from the 2020 Tokyo Games after all … and one of the biggest stars in the sport couldn”t be more thrilled.

our sources spoke with Rulon Gardner — former “Biggest Loser” contestant and gold medal winner at the 2000 Sydney Games — who tells us the IOC”s ruling made his day.

Rulon says he still can”t believe the sport was ever on the chopping block to begin with … but he”s pumped “wrestling will showcase it”s greatness to the world once again.”

As for the other sports nixed from the 2020 Games, like squash, they”re still out … because no one cares about squash.

Seriously, who plays squash
