It is rumored that London will be introducing Darts as an official Olympic event. Genius.
Events I would like to see eliminated.
Speed Walking - if not eliminated at least drop the "speed" or include it in other events. E.g. Speed Running, Speed Swimming.
Equestrian - this is a sport for animals. If we keep this event then they should make it interesting by swapping the horses for Zebras.
Steeple Chase - this is the event where they run around the athletics track jumping over hurdles and there is that one hurdle that is over a puddle of water. what activity this is supposed to represent in human life is beyond me. Only keep event if they make it more like horse stepplechasing where the runner has to piggyback another person around the track. Or maybe a horse. No that would be too big. A pony!
Any event where the participants have to wear make up and smile - includes synchronised swimming and gymnastics.
Events with misleading names - "Mens rings", Fencing and Boxing.
Events that should be merged or added.
Zebra riding (see above)
Totem tennis - or combine totem tennis with table tennis.
Hockey, water polo and equestrian to be combined. Horses to wear flippers in the water, riders to use La Cross sticks.
