Default Which Olympic sport....

Now that ballroom dancing and singles syncro swim (really I mean that defies logic) have been removed


would you take out...


...and what would you replace it with.


I would take out synchro diving

and add golf or rugby.

Add RUGBY for sure. Many countries play it, so it would be fitting.

not sure about golf. maybe.

and take out all judged events.

Rugby is becoming HUGE in North America due to the shrinking budgets at High Schools and the elimination of Football programs. Not sure if the South Americas or Africans or Asians play it. Maybe someone can help there.

Love to see Golf as well.

Rugby is vastly played in aouth america and is probably the biggest sport in Oceana (that has some asian countries). I'm sure some african countries would have teams as well.

Rugby actually makes perfect sense.

Good jorb, Benzo.

Golf should be an olymipic sport.

Rugby should be an oplympic sport.

Criket should be an olympic sport.
