Well the CAC countries have proven world class in all three, so all are technically deserving of being on the program. Excited about Netball, should be an interesting podium there. :CRC should dominate surfing, especially since it’s a home games for them.

My geography and memory is really failing this week, and it’s seriously concerning. :PAN and :CRC aren’t even that similar:facepalm:

Looks like they may have split canoe sprint and slalom. Cycling also has a properly done event (only road and BMX freestyle though). Sport climbing only having bouldering is an interesting choice. Also beach wrestling?

Beach Wrestling is essentially glorified African wrestling. Makes sense to have closest thing to the national sport on the program. Look Senegalese wrestling. The crowds that come out to some of those events are insane.

Also worth noticing that it’s not actually Canoe Sprint, but Canoe Ocean Racing.

"The IOC has also scrapped mixed National Olympic Committee events after some caused confusion for athletes and spectators at last year's Summer Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires"
