Paris set a pretty clear precedent that the IOC will let you host surfing literally anywhere in your country without any complaints - a Toronto bid would have no problem finding a suitable natural venue somewhere in Canada.

So I guess perspective hosts should get their colonies first. And quickly. :rolleyes:

It should be noted that weightlifting had 24 medalling nations in Tokyo, while boxing had 25. The list of nations included the likes of :TKM:SYR:GHA.

 

Surfing, and especially skaterboarding, are not exactly... diverse. Although diversity only really counts in certain situations.

 

Anyways, I am not exactly sad for boxing/weightlifting (for IOC/AIBA and IWF, rather), but still I don't see these sports as deserving replacements. It's not like the universality was only lacking in medals, it was also very much lacking in participation.

In regards to universality, it is a shame that Karate wasn’t added as a core sport. It could have replaced boxing as another combat sport too.
