Most Popular Sports of the Olympic GamesMatrixGuy
The Top Ten
This is the most beautiful sport to watch because there are actual routines planned for it. They are made to look lovely to watch, to show off athletic skill. A lot of Olympic sports are just a game, gymnastics is made to be a thrill to watch on purpose! I can't wait!
With other sports, you can try it out or do it casually like football, basketball, handball, swimming, etc. But you can't even pretend to do gymnastics casually unless you're trained for it. It's intense competition and they do it with grace and ease nonetheless
I'm also a gymnast my self artistic gymnastics is the most watched it is intense, exciting, and a jaw opener it is a hard sport in witch the athletes put the hard work, time, effort, and dedication into.
Gymnastics is the best sport in the world because you have to do a lot of training (most people start at age 2)V 28 Comments
When people think of the Olympics they think of athletics. That's why closing and opening ceremonies are always held in the athletics ceremonies. I don't watch the Olympic for football, tennis, cricket etc because the Olympics is not the pinnacle of those sports, that's why the Olympics is all about athletics.
Track and field is no doubt the hardest event in the olympics. People talk more about gymnastics because the gymnasts look ridiculous and act like babies, but the real sport is track and field, minus the discus and hammer throw.
Usain bolt gives it a good name
BECAUSE I LIKE BOLT
AND I AM A RECORD OF 100 METER IN 14 SEC.
WHEN I WILL PLAY OLYMPIC MY RECORD WILL 7SEC
Swimming is one of the most popular sports - if not the most popular sport in the Olympics simply because everyone can relate to swimming. Swimming is an easy sport to follow and to root for and everyone has swam before or seen someone swimming. Not to mention swimmers are super good looking and easy on the eyes!
The only sport I specifically tune in to watch is aiming. The gymnasts seem mediocre in the last few Olympic Games. I do like beach volleyball also.
Michael phelps best olympian of all time swimming is the greatest
I love swimmingV 13 Comments
Men love beach volleyball because of the skimpy outfit of the girls. They should wear proper athletic outfits, like the other Olympic athletes not bikinis. It looks unprofessional for the Olympics. It's OK for the beach, perhaps.
Without this ratings would lose a large demographic.
It sucks so bad

Its fun and it uses all your muscles in your body,

Bast sports in cycling
Great sport. Requires the same amount of training but must keep adrenaline in check in order to aim and focus accurately.
Archery is an amazing sport, and is severely underestimated. I lovethis sport.V 4 Comments
So tough on the body but good for you.
Diving is a very undermined sport. Lots of people think they can just "pick the sport up" and that it is easy, but that is far from the truth. I takes lots of concentration, practice, and uses every muscle in your body. It is a very mental sport. People don't realize how fast you travel in the air and how much water can really hurt. When a diver jumps off ten meter (equivalent to a 3 story building) they travel at least 60mph before they hit the water. Synchronized diving is one of the hardest to master as well!
It is one of the most majestic sports to watch. I would rank it among or near gymnastics and swimming!
I love this sport, apparently they are going to make diving into the ground a sport and see who survives the longest
I'm seriously fanatic of diving.This sport creates wonderful diver such as Greg Louganis, Tom Daley, Fu Mingxia, Wu Minxia, Guo Jingjing and many moreV 2 Comments

Equestrian is the most passionate, beautiful, and skilled sport, Always so interesting and exciting to watch I LOVE it
If you have ever watched show jumping you would know of the incredible tension in the jump off!
It is very difficult to train and be in harmony with the horse and the creatures are amazing and powerful animals
Equestrian is my favorite Olympic sportV 4 Comments
Unlike other sports, big money has never tainted or entered the professional badminton arena. Therefore, from beginner to professional it is still a sport played for the sheer love and enjoyment of it. Just look at the immense dedication and extreme fitness levels required - and the height some players get in the jump smash - incredible. Hitting the shuttle at just under 500 kph (over 300 mph) make this the fastest racket sport in the world. And all for the love of the sport and not the money! Played all over the world by ALL age groups Badminton is simply not covered enough by the media - why not? - no big money to be won!
I love watching and playing badminton. Even when it's not professional and I'm watching the little kids at practice play it's so fun to watch
" gets you so hyped up and pumped and is way faster than tennis"

Table Tennis, Handball, Football, Gymnastics, Football and Aquatics (inc diving) are the best in my opinion.
Because it really need a skills and determination. and also you need a concentration
I love this game so many punch ups and fights. hopefully jamie soward wins gold again
I shoot in the junior olympics and I got 3 Ed for nationals it is the hardest sport that's out there and I do basketball and football to and it's really tough
