Your Summer Olympic Sport Program Review

Recommended Posts

LDOG    181

I think a team sport only can be replaced by another team sport and since Baseball has been included again (although not in very acceptable conditions), I don't see any other one with the strenght to enter the program.

 

 

What is a no no for me is adding team events of individual sports, the only purpose that always has is to gift more medals to strong nations.

Baseball is not a core sport, and its extremely doubtful it will become one unless one of the current sports comes off.

How do team events work? One from each event like a relay?

3 boats from the same class go down the course at the same time. Time taken when boat 3 breaks the line.

With IOC allowing a whole bunch of sports to be added in 2020, the thought of removing sports is plain silly to me.

 

And I don't see the point in saying that sport should be out because someone doesn't like, doesn't understand or doesn't follow it (or even because their nations are not good at it!). Olympics are not made for one person's liking, there's something for everyone.

Out Boxing, Dressage as individual event, men's football, modern penthatlon, wrestling and rhythmic gymnastics.

I'm also not a big fan of team competitions on individual events (tennis, table tennis, fencing, archery).

I would not put any more sport in.

 

Regarding Field Hockey, I actually like it a lot, and it's my favourite kind of hockey, though I don't think more teams are neede to the Olympic tournament.

 

Do tell what team event we have in tennis?

no. each team has 3 boats. they starts at same time. the time of the team stop when last rider pass the finish line..teams has to pass all gates the same way as it it for the individual race, so the upstream gates too. each hit is penalized by 2 sec. and each miss by 50 sec.

 

You can hardly find much entertaining sport as the canoe slalom team events are. especially in the C1 and C2 classes.

 

 

We can have 3 athletes per Nation, which will be only fair in this sport !  and even if no so let say we may do it like the table tennis system. let say 2 athletes per nation with posibility to compete in the individual race, and the 3rd to be added for the team event

Weightlifting: some sort of strongman competition that would be fun to watch rather than just people lifting a bunch of weight

I would not remove any sports but guide better federations where is corruption (boxing at first, i have feeling gold medalists were known in advance) 

 

also i think boxing needs again helmets with sensors like in taekwondo 

 

water polo 12 teams for women

all team events in fencing

 

no 50m and mixed events in swimming

and no mixed events in any sport

Agora, wpwells disse:

Doubles is not a team event.

 

Yeah I know the term is incorrect, but I really don't like the doubles version of a sport I see as more for the individual. That's only my opinion.
