Rio Olympics 2016

An arena for athletics. Post lifetime is 1 year.

With the Olympics just around the corner I thought I would start a thread. Rather than starting on a positive note I thought I would begin by listing the 4 "sports" I detest and would like to see removed from the Olympics and banned from television:

1. Rhythmic Gymnastics
2. Synchronized Swimming
3. Trampoline
4. Synchronized Diving

Rhythmic Gymnastics is the worst, by far.

Ha, there's only a handful of real sports at the Olympics anyway. Definitely agree on those though.

I'll watch some things for sure like I always do.

The Russians are the East Germans of the 21st century.

I hope it goes well for Rio because Brazil can use some good news....I have a bad feeling though.

I've read that the police buildings don't even have enough funds to buy toilet paper for the bathrooms because all public funds have been redirected to the corrupt contractors who are holding the Olympic facilities hostage until they receive additional money to finish. Hope it isn't really *that* bad but that sounds pretty bad. :roll:

Is rhythmic pingpong still a thing? I love that one- makes kayak discus look like javelin diving.

How is baseball not an Olympic sport again?

I would totally watch it. It should be in the sand with a mud pit in the middle.

How did they remove wrestling? Seems like one of the quintessential Olympic games. Saw a dude in college fend off a crackhead with a knife by stripping naked, and yelling Greco-Roman style.

As much as I want it to be, it's tough to have an Olympic team put together when it's in the middle of the regular season for that sport. Even college guys are off doing their summer assignments in places like the Cape Cod league

Wrestling is still in. IMO when they drop wrestling the Olympics should be cancelled. It is one of the few sports that reaches back to the ancient Olympics. Other sports to eliminate: Field Hockey, Ping-Pong, Badminton, and Handball.

If you have Badmitton, why not add Yard Darts and Croquet.
