Havin' a roni


Seems like the Olympics are starting to wind down a bit, less and less medals up for grabs. Now is a good time to discuss some new and fun Olympic sports for the future.

We have breakdancing coming in 2024, so there's probably no limits on the type of stuff they could get into the Olympics at this point!

Personally, I would like to throw in team tag into the hat for new sports, this poo poo is pretty loving fun to watch on YouTube, way more fun than it should be!

Olympic watching the Olympics. It feels like a real marathon for some of us. I know it'd be another judged event, but they're common. And I think there's definitely the chance a few goons could qualify.

Olympic bombing (hold up CIA man) as part of the diving events. Competitors can use any of the diving platforms and whoever makes the biggest splash wins. Judges sit right by the pool wearing plastic ponchos.

Also parkour. Give them some obstacle puzzles to overcome and have them judged on time, creativity, and athletics.

Paintball, the more realistic one where you shoot the little BBs (can't remember the name) or better yet, two squads fighting with live ammo.

Pro wrestling as a judged team sport would be hilarious. Youd have like Jericho/Omega and/or Owens/Zayn representing Canada and each country gets a 5 minute segment in ring to tell build heat/set the storyline and then a 15 minute match with scoring based on Meltzer snowflakes. Teams also get bonus/penalty degree of difficulty points for adding booking elements/gimmicks. Like a blindfold match gets an extra star for making a lovely match type work or a ladder match is worth negative 1 for taking an easy match type.

Cmon rarity, we all know Ibushi would win in the final. Japans medal to lose.

As for events? More mixed relays. Ive loved watching the relay triathlon and swimming.

Mixed team road time trial next?

Oh, and for Paris 2024? Ptanque.

How is there a mixed 4x400 relay but not a badass 4x100 for the fastest country on Earth?

I assume because of the number of elite runners per country. Wouldnt be able to have heats/semis/finals?

Jamaica
USA
GBR
France?
Germany?
Australia?
China?
Japan?
ROC?
Netherlands?

Not enough for the full program, I suppose.

Since the winter games has curling there should be a summer equivalent - some version of boules.

And bring back tug of war.

Come to think of it, calling it an olympics without reintroducing Pankration just isn't right.

Massive penalties if you stall for more than 20 seconds cause if not it would be boring.


My suggestions:
Soap Box Derby
Hacky Sack
Handball

And most of these but as competitive as they can be. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Olympic_medalists_in_art_competitions

I'm thinking some kind of pairing of events, so you take a shot putter (because I'm watching that now) and diving, and the athletes from each discipline have to compete in both and the combined scores from all four combinations is what counts.

Basically pick the funniest two combinations of events.

Edit: Table Tennis and Tennis, just to see how they translate??

Anything featured in We Are the Champions. Except the frog-jumping and maybe the hair-dressing because I'm not sure they're physical enough.

So basically:

- Chasing a wheel of cheese down a hill
- Yo-yo
- Chili Pepper Eating
- Dog Dancing.

Nevermind, hairdressing can be on the list too. So just Frog-Jumping is out from We Are the Champions.
