Sports That Should Be In the Olympics


The Top Ten

1 American Football

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

This and baseball would be awesome! - Alpha101

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.

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 Rugby
5 Squash
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

The Contenders

11 Karate
12 Roller Derby
13 Sumo
14 Hurling
15 Gaelic Football
16 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?

17 Dodgeball
18 Climbing

This would help Nepal to win its first medal

19 Cheerleading
20 Bocce
