yeah along with shot put, javelin, hammer throw, high jump, triple jump, pole vault, relay race, hurdles, etc... lots of stuff under the umbrella of "athletics" or track and field

Did they eliminate the decathlon??

Unlike triathon etc. all ten events in decathlon fall into the athletics category, so it's not listed separately.

It is kind of strange how the Olympics classify sports. Events as different as waterpolo (a team sport) and diving and swimming are sub-categories of aquatics, whereas sports as similar as baseball and softball merit their own category.

It might have something to do with the governing bodies of the sports. Both waterpolo and diving are governed by a body called FINA. Baseball and Softball have been governed by 2 separate organizations until 2013 when the two merged.

Quite inconsistent in where you need the -ing and where it's fine to go without. Like canoe vs. rowing.

ou shouldnt accept canoe either. If anyone is gonna come up with it, they are smart enough to remember the -ing, if not, their loss.

Are Golf, Skateboarding, climbing and surfing new additions?

Golf was new in 2016 (technically they also had it in 1900/1904). Karate, skateboarding, climbing, and surfing are brand-new. Baseball/softball are "new"--dropped from the Olympics after 2008 but brought back now.

Track also would have been accepted. Running doesn't make sense unless pole vaulting or hammer tossing counts as "running".

Some of these aren't sports.

If you wear a costume, put on make-up, utilise choreography and music, and are scored by judges who must consider the artistic merit of your act, then you're not playing a sport. You're performing art.

While we're here, if you play your "sport" through a computer (x-box etc), you're a gamer, not an athlete.

Nothing wrong with either of those things: embrace them as they are worthwhile endeavours. Just

don't call them sports.

Computer games are called esports these days, may make it to the Olympics soon.

And what's wrong with wearing make-up? Many other sports are subjectively judged too (diving, surfing etc.), although these may be judged by AI in future :)

I appreciate that refereeing calls etc can be subjective, however, I do have issue with sports where the end results are based on opinion. Also, I agree about esports! The Olympics should be about elite sports people. By all means, set up a separate esports Olympics, but keep them separate as they are not remotely the same thing!

but Fencing is not already inside Modern Pentathlon? So it makes 33 sport instead of 34.
+2

Jul 27, 2021
Fencing is also a separate sport that is competed outside of the modern pentathlon (just like equestrian and shooting)

You should consider accepting "crew" for "rowing," as that's what it's often called (source: was on the crew team at school).

Wow...Im surprised to see how little sports this games had. I was thinking maybe 60 different sports?

I watched the entire thing..I enjoy the Olympics.

One more thing: Shouldn't American Football, Horse Racing, Bull Riding, Cricket, Bowling, Jai Alai, Polo and Squash be on the Games?????

Love how my brain, knowing the answers are in alphabetical order and time is winding down, just starts spitting out things that fit. Spearfishing. Ultimate frisbee. Jai alai. Hurling. Fox hunting. Demolition derby. Spelunking. Lawn darts. Bocce. Ballroom dancing.

It's a true shame that the blatantly biased IOC continues to allow and encourage so-called "sports" like "wrestling", "swimming", and "football", but won't acknowledge the true fundamentals of athletic achievement, like wife-carrying, cheese-rolling, and wet T-shirt contests.

Breakdancing?!

Level 72
May 27, 2024
Yeah, not sure how that qualifies as a sport, or at least one worthy of Olympic inclusion. But the definition of “sport” is pretty arbitrary and ‘sports’ do come and go from the Olympics. I’m still struggling to see why Break dancing should be in and something like Ball room dancing isn’t, not that I consider either a ‘sport’. But then it’s probably similar to why some martial arts are included and others aren't.

I would have been guessing for a long time before I got Breakdancing though.

I'm not sure why people are so surprised/dismayed about breakdancing being included. It definitely requires athleticism and skill to do well, and personally I think it's fun to watch. Seems like a worthy inclusion to me.
