Agree with Crashed Ice and Lacrosse.

I think I can think of a longer list of sports that do not belong in the Olympics.

For lacrosse, is there enough parity at this point? I know plenty of team play it, but is it still USA/CAN/AUS dominating? Otherwise it's be pretty cool to have lacrosse.

1. I have no idea how speed walking is an Olympic sport while Lacrosse isn't.
2. Crashed Ice would be pretty epic.

I was thinking last night how if Dressage is still an Olympic sport, then clearly there's room for some more legitimate stuff in there. On that note I'm absolutely stoked for Rugby 7s to be in for Rio.

Hurling would be sweet, avalanch. Only 1 problem... Ireland would be the only nation representing! Gold, Silver and Bronze for the Irish!

How about "Diving for Pennies in the Deep End" or "Marco Polo"?

i'd like to see hurling become a bigger sport. I saw one game on TV one time late at night and i thought it was amazing.

it was in the olympics way back in the day:

Hurling at the Olympic Games
In 1904, hurling was an unofficial sport on the 1904 Summer Olympics in St. Louis, Missouri, in the United States. In the final, Fenian F.C. (Chicago) USA beat Innisfails (St. Louis).[14]


and there are some hurling clubs outside of Ireland, but only Ireland has a national team, right now. if it were to be entered as an olympic sport, i'm sure national teams would emerge.

Lol. Was thinking about a different kind of hurling. Looks similar to shinty. Gaelic Football also looks really cool, but probably never going to happen.

Golf, now that would be exciting.

Silly me, I guess Lacrosse would be cool, probably be the first gold medal we could take home. B)

Lacrosse should be in there for sure in the summer olympics, I am positiive that if they can have field hockey, then they could also have lacrosse.

Crashed Ice would be cool as well but lacrosse in the summer olympics is much more realistic.

Field lacrosse would be more likely, but I love box lacrosse as well. Crashed Ice would be awesome at the winter games.

For fun...

How the hell Rugby isn't, and stupid garbage like power walking and dressage are, boggles my mind.

Lacrosse would be great, but I don't know how popular it is worldwide. Would definitely be a sure medal for CAN/USA/AUS lol.

Twenty-20 cricket should be in the summer olympics.

For winter olympics, i think crashed ice would be good.

I would like to see Crashed Ice modified and certified as Ice Cross for the Winter games. The venues, in my opinion, should allow spectators to view the event from above the course. Appropriate bleachers would needed, and the courses would need to be redesigned with downward-positioned barriers surrounding the outside of the course for safety.

The current viewing arrangement make little sense, and there is a hazardous fall for anybody who mistimes their jump:

The sport needs a few tweaks before it should be certified for the Olympics.

Sepektraw/Foot Volleyball. Thats some crazy... Also, does anybody else feel that half these 'sports' were just made up by kids? Just take an activity and add a bunch of stupid nit-picky rules to it and call it a competition.
