10 Events that SHOULD Be in the Olympics

August 5th, 2008 by Yano

 The Olympics start this Friday, and as a little kid I’ve always loved watching them…but there are times I wish there were more events to watch…sometimes watching the marathon can get boring.

So what events do you think should be in the Olympics?  For a current list, go <a href=”">here</a>.  Your list could be serious or fun - mine will be a mixture of both.

  1. In-line skating:  short track speedskating is already a winter Olympics sport, why not the summer equivalent?
  2. Iron man triathalon: it would be like the equivalent of the track and field pentathalon, but much more grueling
  3. Billiards: So non-healthy smokers can get into the Olympics, too
  4. Mixed Martial Arts: the Olympic Octagon!
  5. Whirly Ball (google it!)
  6. Rugby
  7. Bowling
  8. Ballroom Dancing: so we can cry to the screen, “but it looked so beautiful!” when they get low technical marks, just like in ice skating
  9. Frisbee Golf
  10. Hide and Seek - each country gets one person to play.  The seeker is a neutral person.  it could be boring to watch, but hidden cameras may make it more fun

    Well I’ve posted “something”, since I don’t watch the Olympics or participate or follow any sport except for Colts Football, I’ve only post a little blurb directing my visitors to check out what everyone else has to say.

    Have a great Tuesday!

    Oh oh … my suggestions, though fun, are waaaaaaaaaay out there! Ha!

    I played!

    I love your list and agree with many. Mine is more tongue in cheek!

  4. Florinda Says:

    My husband’s getting better at these than I am, so I posted his list this week. I’m in trouble if he starts a blog of his own and doesn’t let me have these “guest posts” any more. :-)

  5. Shannon Says:

    I am posted for today!


  6. Kimber Says:

    Mine is up, and I went for the silly side. ;)

    Great list, Yano. I like your suggestion of rugby, and your frisbee golf suggestion reminded me that Ultimate Frisbee should be included. It is, by far, the most demanding team sport I have played in terms of pure kick-your-butt exhaustion.

    My list is up: http://cornerkick.blogspot.com/2008/08/ten-on-tuesday-olympics.html
