OKLAHOMA CITY -

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe is among a bipartisan group of U.S. senators seeking to keep wrestling in the Olympic Games.

Inhofe announced Friday that he joined with five other senators who introduced a resolution urging the International Olympic Committee to reverse its decision this week to eliminate wrestling from the games.

Joining Inhofe -- a Republican -- are Democratic Sens. Sherrod Brown of Ohio; Al Franken of Minnesota; Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Tom Harkin of Iowa and Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa.

A companion resolution was introduced in the U.S. House.

The IOC's executive board voted for the preliminary recommendation on Tuesday. It still must be affirmed in September by the entire IOC.
