Top Ten Sports That Should Have Never Been In the Summer Olympics
The Top Ten
Things like ribbon twirling and hula hooping are activities that kids like to take part in. They should definitely not be in the Olympics. - Kevie16
Why not water balloon fighting or juggling or distance spitting?
Olympic sports should only be as originally intended.
Were they kidding? Tug of war is a game you play with your dog or your friends when you're fooling around. This is absolutely not an Olympic sport. The only reson it is not first is because it was only an event for five Olympic Games. - Kevie16
Haha laugh out loud! This was taken place at the Pep Rally in my school! - NerdyPweeps
I think desk drumming should be an Olympic sport!
Is this really in the Olympics? Hah what
Are you kidding me? Dressage and show jumping require so much skill, commitment and precision. Could you control a 1,200 pound animal with only a twitch of your finger or a shift of weight? No? I didn't think so. The equestrian events are fun to watch and require immense skill on the part of both horse and rider.
I'm an equestrian. Don't say that it's a sport only for the horse. The rider needs lots of skill also and a bond with the horse. I'd like to see you get on a horse and jump a 2 meter course
Many people enjoy watching equestrian, and it is always nice to see a a jockey and a horse's great bond. But is this really Olympics material. - Kevie16
A human isn't evening doing the work, the horse is. Anyone who does equestrian is showing that they are rich and can sit on animal.
Canoeing and kayaking were a long stretch to begin with, but rowing is basically the same thing and very boring to watch. - Kevie16
Synchronized swimming is a very demanding sport. The swimmers must throw their teammates out of the water for jumps like in cheerleading - except they cannot touch the bottom of the pool.They have to tread water upside down, breathe at the right times, keep time with their teammates and with the music. It's not just flopping around in a pool.
Swimming is exciting, fast-paced, and understandable, but synchronized swimming is just a stupid, pointless Olympic event. - Kevie16
Peach, Daisy, Amy & Blaze all suck at Synchronized Swimming anyway.
It looks incredibly hard and deserves to be there
Weightlifting is something you do when you are to getting stronger for another sport; it should not be a sport itself. It should not be in the Olympics. - Kevie16
Another synchronized water sport, really?! Synchronized diving looks kind of cool. That's why it is lower on this list than synchronized swimming, but it is still pointless. - Kevie16
This was an event for only one game. It was stupid because it was basically indoor tennis. It really never should have been an event. - Kevie16
What on Earth does steering a boat have to do with being physically active. This event proved nothing in the Olympics, yet it is still in the games. - Kevie16
This should NOT be on this list. It may not be the best fit for the Olympics, but it is played in many countries and is very competitive. - Dodgers27
Baseball was a dumb event because its playing style doesn't really fit into the other Olympic sports' styles... if you know what I mean. - Kevie16
This is a beach game. Not a sport.
Leave it on the beach, it's a xgames sport
Football should never be an Olympic sport, if winning the Olympics is not the pinnacle of achievement then why is it an Olympic sport? Especially as half the best players in the world would prefer to play for their club that go to the Olympics
Football is a great sport. I should know this because I'm a 13 yr old girl, and I'm in our suburbs A team
Cricket isn't even in the Olympics.Who put cricket here?
It has its own tournament that is huge
This is a game where you hit a little ball toward a hole. It is not a sport.
My brother won't be happy. - Connor360
Very boring hoe stay,but I respect that some people like it
