The whole Olympic circus has become so bloated and corrupt (15 IOC officials just spent $65,000 on LUNCH in London) maybe its time to do some serious pruning and focus on sports that show genuine athletic ability instead of these ridiculous minority "sports" or even some team events.
It would create a more level playing field (ha!) if only amateurs were allowed to participate like in the good old days.
Soccer - has PLENTY of other championship competitions
Tennis - Ditto
Handball - wtf?
Water Polo - handball in the pool
Fencing - zzzzzzzzz
Shooting - You're not an elite athlete just because you can aim straight.
Badminton - in fact any racket sport
Beach Volleyball - pervs paradise, the only reason it's in.
And now they want to put in Golf ffs.
Any other suggestions ?
