Rhythmic Gymnastics: Above
So, I've been thinking (dangerous.) I've come to the conclusions that some so-called sports should be eliminated from the Olympics because the way these sports are evaluated is WAY TOO SUBJECTIVE!
Basically, anything that is judged should be pitched because the judges are biased and can be paid off, threatened, whatever.
Table Tennis (above) can stay because you either win or lose based on how many points you get. OBJECTIVE!
Javelin- This can stay because whoever chucks the stick the farthest wins. Period. No ambiguity in this event. You can't argue the results. OBJECTIVE!
Gymnastics- has to go! I know I know people love to see these malnourished young girls flinging their bodies around on pieces of equipment that you and I will never come across in real life. Maybe we can keep gymnastics as an exhibition only thing or something. SUBJECTIVE!
Cycling- no brainer- it stays. Whether it's Track, RR, ITT, Mountain, whatever- the guy who crosses the line first wins. Provided he's not caught doping. Not sure about BMX yet. Have to see how it works Olympic Style this week. OBJECTIVE!
Quick Question: Watching Men's Team Pursuit right now. If the British track racers are so dominant (Paul Sherwin's words) then how come there aren't more of them in the pro pelaton?
Track Cycling stays because it is OBJECTIVE. Note: I love the race where they go REALLY SLOW and then sprint the final lap. That's cool. OBJECTIVE!
Diving- Gotta Go! Because it is not based on goals, time, or measurement of how far you can chuck something it is SUBJECTIVE. Again, Maybe keep it as an exhibition. SUBJECTIVE!
What are your thoughts on this controversial, thought provoking proposition??
