This should make into Olympics:

on a more serious note, how do you define a sport and whether it is suitable for the Olympics? i understand that there are some really lame events or so-called sports that have been in the Olympics... e.g., chess was once in the Olympics. i am really amazed that this is even considered a sport.
i'm thinking... is Squash considered a sport? if yes, then why isn't it included in the Olympics?
Mythbusters - the bigger the explosion, the better it is.
Baseball and softball, which happens to be more of a sport than trampoline jumping, is going to be removed from the next Olympics. Why remove baseball and softball and not trampoline jumping?
queuing competition... sure get gold one.. no need foreign talent.
if not, then we'll have durian eating competition..
小轮车 shld be axed instead!!
Phew, look at the precision n concentration required to perform those exercise. it's by no means, easy or whatever u implied
CLICK pretty lady
photography. carry heavy camera, carry heavier tripod, carry lenses.
dangerous too, risk getting beaten for candid shots, if not chase by security guard for taking photos at unauthorised areas(MRT), and sometimes the pictures so sharp, can cut. (ask VR MAN who uses VR bodies)
I read somewhere in one of the previous Olympics (either Athens or Sydney) they made ballroom dancing an exhibition sport.
Trampolining IS part of gymnastics ! Being a former gymnast i can attest tt the level of difficulty, hours needed in training and risk of injury is similar to the other events in gymnastics. And it is VERY different from bouncing ard in ur back yard trampoline. Its the same as saying that playing ''police and thief'' is the same as a 100m/200m sprint. I wont say its more of a sport then another sport, very hard to qualify such an answer.
However i muz disagree with WWE ...... its acting ..... its like watching a soap drama, albeit a very badly scripted one. If someone recommended UFC or K1 or some other type of free-style sparing as an olympic sport, THAT i ll watch.
I just see "trampoline jumping" and a bell goes off in my head.
Why in the world would I be jealous of China winning 2 gold medals in this event? They have something like 60 altogether right? That means I would be jealous of all 60 gold medalists from China? You don't make any sense.
Like how some people feel that trampoline jumping is an Olympic sport, I don't think it is. I don't think BMX is an Olympics sport either. Don't they have the X Games for that? Why not have skateboarding too? Rollerblading? Handgliding? Base jumping? Tooth brushing? Gor Li?

Its up to the Olympic community to decide what sport to include in their games.
Football has the world cup and its still featured in Olympics. So do tennis with its grand slams. Other sports has their world championships as well and is also featured.
there r many sports in the world. i wonder how long the Olypics would be if all the sports in the world were included...
den i remember Channel 5's Whacked Out Sports!
