Half the sports in theOlympics are rubbish

Come on, you know it's true.

Running round in circles and jumping over sticks. Rubbish. Especially the one when you jump over sticks with another stick. Absolute cobblers.

What would you bring in/sling out?

Re: Half the sports in theOlympics are rubbish

Out:
Synchronised Swimming
Ballroom Dancing
Anything where you get points for "style".

Also out (and premièring in London)
Petanque:
A "sport" played by fat, moustachioed
men whilst smoking Gitanes and drinking Pastis.
Yes, very Olympian.

Shooting. (Stop those handgun enthusiasts *****ing
about not having a legal right to bare arms [sic] in the UK.)

And anything that is mainstream:
e.g. Football & Tennis.



In:

Chariot racing
Any of the X-Games competitions.
Base jumping

Re: Half the sports in theOlympics are rubbish

I'd leave things as they except introduce some incentive to run faster.

Lions
Tigers
Crocodiles
Swarms of Hornets

That sort of thing

Suppose that you can always rely on games based loosely on the principle of 'Fight to the death' to liven things up a bit.
