11 Awesome Sports That Should be Added to The Olympics

Why 11? Because I like to go 1 step beyond... Brownie points if you know the reference πŸ˜‹... I'm also doing this cause I'm bored.

1- Ultimate Frisbee

A sport I played in high school and college. No it's not only for stoners and alcoholics... Although a lot of my teammates happened to be massive stoners and alcoholics 😏. It's like football without the pads and constant tackling (although I've taken my fair share of licks and broken bones) and soccer, but you actually score points πŸ˜‚

2- Tug of War

Oddly enough, it was a sport in the Olympics until 1920... Bring it back!!! P.S, this was the first video I could find in my extensive research (Google first page πŸ˜‚)

3- Obstacle Course... Coursing? πŸ€”

You got tough mudder, Spartan race, ninja warrior (the regular and American variety) some shit they show on ESPN for college kids... It goes on. Both team and individual

4- Parkour

Staying in the obstacle course family, why don't we just add what every single human should love to see, people doing crazy shit. And what better way to do that than to have parkour? By merely having it in the Olympics, we are encouraging people to literally train to become ninjas 😱😱😱. And this is so fucking dope

5- Squash

Or any sport like this... Partially to fill out my list and partially to show this douchebag πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. You play squash, homie. Just remember that. πŸ‘Œ

6- Wakeboarding and/or Kiteboarding

They just look so dope that how can you leave them off the list? Freestyle and/or racing.

7- Bike Racing

Like regular BMX bikes. Kinda like motocross, but with plain old bikes. They have something similar to it, but they just do time trials. But like snowboard cross or ski cross where you got like 5 competitor heats and absolute chaos ensues 😝... Lo siento. No tengo un video (how's my Spanish @AleDeEurope? 😁)

8- Bowling

I know someone is gonna rip me for this, but who doesn't like bowling? It's fun as shit. Plus, they have table tennis... And who doesn't want to see Pete Weber being Pete Weber?

9- Lacrosse

Alright, lax bros, here's your chance. After you get past the douchebaggery and their flow (it will take a while), lax is actually a fun sport to watch and play. It's basically hockey, but more difficult... Didn't watch the video, but it looked dope 😁

10- Slamball

Anyone who watched ESPN early 2000s plus knows what this is. The formula is as follows

Slamball= Basketball + trampoline + virtually no rules

11- Dodgeball

Y'all had to see this coming. There's even a movie about it. What better way to cap this list off with a gym class favorite? Just remember the 5 Ds: Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive and Dodge πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ

And how do you make it better? Y'all must've not been paying attention... Trampolines! Trampolines make EVERYTHING better! 😁

There are definitely some I left off the list, but hey, thems the breaks. 😁

  • Hahaha Dodge Ball! I've seen it on ESPN8 "The Ocho"


    Do you think they could host it at the Las Vegas University Learning Annex? And yeah they had BMX bikes this year.

    • Kinda hard to having it in las Vegas when the games are in Japan in 2020, but worth a shot πŸ˜‚

  • That tug of war game was so much fun to watch!!

  • I agree. It'd be fun to watch those sports in the olympics.


What Guys Said 11

  • Hell, I could go with all of those. :)

    But I saw a BMX race event just the other day. It wasn't a time trial; there were like 6 or 8 BMXers racing against each other in one crazy one-lap sprint.

    • I totally missed it 😭. I only saw the time trial. They had to do a lap. I know they added it this year so I don't know what they added, specifically. I haven't been able to keep up with the olympics like I usually do. But anything with cross in it is absolutely intense, amazing and totally ridiculous 😁

    • Oh yeah, they were falling all over the place. It was pretty nuts. :P

    • Anything with cross usually involves a ton of falling and mass chaos! Like I told ale, check out ice cross (posted under his post). And the only way to stop is to crash into the wall at the end πŸ˜‚

  • Nice NC reference where's my fuckin brownie.
    Ultimate Frisbee is awesome love playing that in HS, that should be added way more entertaining than the hockey.

    • Sorry, bruh. You just get brownie points 😝. I wouldn't say it's more entertaining, especially considering how good the commentators are. But it's definitely more fun to play to me!

    • to each his own but hockey is boring as fuck in my opinion.

    • Then you've never heard Mike emrick call play by play, seen 3 on 3 and international hockey. If you can't get hyped from those, then there's no hope for ya 😱

  • Parkour would be pretty awesome. They should also add Ice Hockey, I'd definitely watch that, though I don't know if those belong to the winter Olympics.

  • Dodgeball - definitely, one of my favorite team sports :D
    Lacrosse was a demonstration sport in the 1928 and 1932 Olympics, I hope they will make it a regular Olympic sport someday.
    Tug of War used to be a regular sport on the Olympics, I agree, they should bring it back.
    I also agree with most of the other sports above, of course, they can't all be on the Summer and Winter Olympics, that's why I think the Olympic committee should also start organising Spring and Autumn Olympics :P
    PS - I would add some other sports too, for example:

    1. Roller Hockey: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G28-bueRhEQ

    2. Wushu (Sports version of Kung Fu): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVDPoyVuZZg

    3. Skateboard Racing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZW83aW_Hr8

    4. Pankration (Ancient Greek Olympic sport, combination of wrestling and boxing, plus kicking, elbowing and headbutting): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbA3q9DzQMA

    5. Outdoor Handball / Field Handball / Grass Handball: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqA5TMP6WbQ

    6. Fistball (It's like volleyball with the closed fist, outdoors): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kI-BBLh98sc

    7. Water Basketball (Combination of Water Polo and Basketball): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTNcZ6elGEg

    8. Futsal (Indoor version of Football / Soccer): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzcgGHmfaKE

    9. Karate:

    10. Savate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhC_bRpeTF8

  • Tug of war would be boring to watch. Why add more sports to the games and make them long because if they got too long it would be just like the world games that are every year

  • I think we forgot Don't Let the Balloon Touch the Floor.

    • I'd be down! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • The ultimate game. We used to play this in Sunday School when I was little, and it got competitive enough one time to where this kid elbowed another kid in the face to hit the balloon himself (we had teams). Poor kid ended up with a broken nose.

  • Tug of War was removed because the rope would often snap, and it snaps with deadly force. If one of the edges hits you, you could get injured and possibly die.
    Now the sports I would add is car racing like Nascar or F1, snooker, beach soccer, cricket (i hate it but millions love it) and rugby. About bowling, it would be boring because a pro player can strike everytime they want. Also in the next olympics they will add surfing, baseball, karate, climbing, parkour and skateboarding!

    • I think we got the tech to make sure the rope shouldn't snap πŸ˜…

      Also they already said they won't add motor sports (for good reason)

      I was gonna put beach soccer, but I only had 11 spots. I wanted to avoid cricket since I don't know shit about it. Same with snooker

      Rugby is already an Olympic sport. They literally just added it this year

      And I already know what they're adding for 2020... Parkour isn't 1 of them. That's why I left them off to begin with

    • Yeah, I completely forgot we had rugby lol. But yeah, lots of sports are being added, in 12 years maybe competitive eating will be a thing lmao. But in my opinion the core of the olympics is track and field and swimming. My fav to watch! Gymnastics also awesome.

    • Please don't say competitive eating πŸ˜–. It's the single grossest thing on earth. I regrettably watch the Nathan's hotdog eating contest every year... I'll never learn πŸ˜‘

      Well yeah, they each take up at least a week and have a shit ton of events, usually with us absolutely shitting all over the rest of the field in a lot of events, especially in swimming with 33 medals and 65/121 of our medals came from those 2 disciplines alone πŸ˜‚

  • I'm totally on board with ultimate frisbee - those guys to all out man!

  • Lol, bowling, dodgeball and parkour at the olympics would be awesome!

  • I agree!

  • Oh I play squash , good take
