I’m gonna go with skateboarding here. I love skateboarding and was a skater for a long time. But it just doesn’t belong in the Olympics IMO.

That may be competition, and it may be athletic, but it's not a sport.

Boxing, Diving, Gymnastics, surfing etc.. get rid of anything that can be won based on an opinion.

this is why i watched germany vs us last night in wimminz 2 on 2 vball.

the nudity was fantastic. i don’t know if we won and honestly don’t care - but, i can identify the tall german blonde in a naked lineup.

so, there’s that.

I for one am glad you are stopping. You are one of the most ignorant posters ever. You obviously think very highly of your own opinion, unlike the rest of us - RockHillTiger

If I were King, I would remove all things that are not basic.
That does not mean that many sports are not worthy, fun, and exciting, but just not Olympic.

Any sport needing equipment are out -- balls, bicycles, guns, etc -- all out.
Allowed would be rocks to toss and wooden spears.

Basically in would be just the run, jump, swim, fight type things.
Even there I would cut it back. All those different distances are not needed.
For example -- 100, 1500, 10K, Marathon - would cover running with maybe a "Fell" type event added.
All those different swimming medal are a joke as to Olympics.

ETC.

Greeks not Mayans but if the Mayans have some event where bloods flows, that might increase TV ratings.

I thought it was a Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! skit with the best production value ever.

Is that still an Olympic sport? That would be the winner for me.

I was once a jogger, now "power walking" to the fridge for a cold one seems on an Olympian level.

ping pong, badminton, synchronized swimming, diving, trampoline jumping, and walk-racing.

Frankly, I don't like any sport where judges and subjective scoring is used to determine a winner. That includes gymnastics, surfing, BMX, skateboarding, and any others.
