If Olympics really is a show of "athleticism," all the criterias you say in human balance, muscle control, timing, ability to command respect seems like a far more exponentially challenging and valorous display of human achievement in bull riding rather than... you know, making a horse prance about.
Bull riding is about holding on really tight and hoping you don't get trampled when you fall off. That's less a matter of athleticism, more a measure of how low your self preservation instincts are.

Equestrian is a lot like fencing, it's a balance of skill and athleticism, not raw athleticism like sprinting.

Could it be that maybe now it is you who misunderstands another sport?


Who knows, maybe some bullriders might disagree how trivial you put it.

Imagine if Bolt had better starts off the line, he would have scattered the WR.

I'm sure there's more to bullriding than appearances dictate, so I'd happily listen to a bullrider who wants to educate me a bit.

water polo... come on... just watch it -_- the only skill is how long they can stay afloat scoring takes no skill im surprised the final goals aren't in the triple digits etc, actual Polo is faaaaaaaar more a sport hell anything is more of a sport

beach volleyball... i like it for obvious reasons that is the womens event but the sand doesn't offer that huge a difference compared to indoor even cutting it down to 2v2 meh, doesn't justify a separate olympic event imo the indoor accomplishes representing vb (might explain why it took them up until 1996) and the requirements of uniforms lol they should loosen it up so more countries can compete if it wants to be taken as a serious event

cant remember what other sport i noted

Bolts said in an interview the last half is the best part of his race

its probably hard to get going because his height and long legs but once he gets the stride BOOM hes gone

Michael Phelps, of all people, is worried about getting out of shape



Quote:
In addition to traveling the world and improving his golf game, Michael Phelps has one other goal for retirement.

He doesn't want to get fat.

"One of the things I want to do is I'm not going to let myself get out of shape like I did in 2009," Phelps said Sunday. "I gained like 25 pounds in six months. We're going to try not to go down that road this time around."

It might sound ridiculous that a world-class swimmer with a washboard stomach and negligible body fat is worried about putting on a few pounds, but Phelps did start to look more like an everyman than an athlete a few years ago. In the six months after he captured a record eight gold medals in Beijing, Phelps took a break from training, strayed from his diet and gained enough weight that one website ran a shirtless photo of him with the caption, "Where are the Abs?"

[ Related: Full video coverage of the 2012 Olympic Games ]

Phelps' 12,000-calories-a-day diet made headlines in the buildup to the Beijing Olympics, but he has since said that's a myth. Instead, he attributed his loss of muscle tone to a lack of incentive to train with the next Olympics so far away.

"I wasn't motivated. I did nothing, literally nothing, for a long time," Phelps told Details Magazine earlier this year. "I gained 25 pounds. A friend of mine and I were playing football on the beach in Miami, and somebody got a picture of us and put it all over the place. And he's like, 'Bro, you gotta start working out, man. You are fat.'

"I started going through the motions again. I would go back for a week or two and then stop. I'd show up for dry-land practice and then just sneak out the back door so nobody saw me. I was watching 'Rocky II' the other day — the one where he's fighting Apollo for the second time and he's just going through the motions. It reminded me of how I was."

What gave Phelps the motivation to begin training again in 2009 was that he wanted to make sure he reached his full potential in his sport. He won't have swimming to push himself to stay in shape in retirement, so he'll have to find another incentive.

[ Video: Australian TV snubs New Zealand ]

Some expect Phelps to pull a Brett Favre and come out of retirement in time for Rio 2016, but he's adamant that won't happen.

Fellow swimmer Dara Torres tweeted Sunday, "I'm betting @MichaelPhelps isn't done swimming....anyone care to wager???"

Responded Phelps, "Yes i would love 2!!!"

Oh, Revscene.

The only forum where a thread dedicating to following the Olympics can devolve into consecutive pages of posts where people bash sports they've never played, have no knowledge of, take no interest in, and only hear about once every four years.

Nice.

Canada is 25 in the medal count standings currently, not bad considering our small population.
