Sports That Should Be In the Olympics

The Top Ten

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

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


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

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

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.
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.
Arena Football

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


The Contenders

Roller Derby
Gaelic Football
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?
