What sports do you think should be added to the Summer Olympics?
I think it's time for the Half Marathon to be added. It's the largest growing race length in running.Charlie
I wouldn't add any if it means they have to kick wrestling out to do it.
I think that any added sports should be ones with lower facilities & equipment requirements (kinda the opposite of golf). Also it should be a sport that a majority of the 200+ Olympic countries have a chance of competing in.Cross country running.Fill in the women's & men's track distance running. For example women do (I think) 1500-3000-marathon. Why not 5k & 10k? Or even add these distances to road versions as well.Add 1500m for women & 800m for men to swimming.Add wrestling back in (men & women). Add longer triathlons.Bring back baseball & softball. One of the reasons for dropping this was "not enough countries participate" which can be translated to "we are sick of the US & Japan winning all the time". If the IOC could make a deal with MLB then this could change (for example Venezuela has some great players).
I don't want MLB players in the Olympics because I don't want the MLB season interrupted or affected by their players going there.
Men's synchronized swimming!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2AU2xu3CeQ
