Sports That Should Be In the Olympics


The Top Ten

1 American Football

There's a reason its called American football, its only played by America. It'd be stupid to allow it into the Olympics when no other countries play it.

It would be awesome if you saw Drew Brees, Ray Rice, Calvin Johnson, and all those superstars supporting America at the Olympics! Don't you agree? - Alpha101

156 medals, 54 gold. Kinda expensive - CityGuru

This and baseball would be awesome! - Alpha101

2 Baseball Baseball Baseball is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of nine players each who take turns batting and fielding.

They should've never taken in out!

I love Alber Pujoles and it would be great to see him wearing red, white, and blue! - Alpha101

4 Squash

If tennis and badminton are part of the olympics, one cannot justify squash's exclusion in the Olympics

5 Rugby
6 Cricket Cricket Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a cricket field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard-long pitch with a wicket, a set of three wooden stumps sited at each end.

It's probably the second most popular sport in the world.

Come on guys, didn't you realize everyone loves cricket

7 Skateboarding Skateboarding Skateboarding is an action sport which involves riding and performing tricks using a skateboard. Skateboarding can also be considered a recreational activity, an art form, a job, or a method of transportation.
8 Surfing Surfing Surfing is a surface water sport in which the wave rider, referred to as a surfer, rides on the forward or deep face of a moving wave, which is usually carrying the surfer towards the shore.
9 Arena Football

The same as football but harder hits, different players, and a smaller field. - Alpha101

10 Dance

The Contenders

11 Softball
12 Karate
13 Roller Derby
14 Sumo
15 Hurling
16 Gaelic Football
17 Dodgeball
18 Inline Skating

I know a few more sports will probably be added over this but honestly I've been speed skating for so long and I can't believe ice had been in for this much time without having inline added! It is definitely worthy of it I you ask me!

Such an intriging sport with not so many publicity. What's better than being Olympic for that sake?

19 Climbing

This would help Nepal to win its first medal

20 Cross Country Running
21 Cheerleading
22 Bocce
23 Beach Soccer
24 Obstacle Course Racing
25 Bowling
26 Jump Roping
27 Sledding
28 Lacrosse Lacrosse Lacrosse is a contact team sport played between two teams using a small rubber ball and a long-handled stick called a crosse or lacrosse stick.
29 Motocross
30 Ringette
