Whenever all of the Olympics
Whenever the Olympics occur, the whole world tunes in to see the what country is going to go home with the most medals. While some sports make sense, these ones leave us scratching out heads just a little bit.
One of the original games from the Olympics in 500 B.C.E., Tug-of-War was discontinued in 1920.
Live Pigeon Shooting
Shooting at a stationary target is too easy so live pigeon shooting was added in 1900. The event only lasted one year and an estimated 300 fowl were killed during the competition.
Beginning in 1904, this event did not survive long. I mean, how interesting could it be to watch someone swing around a bowling pin?
Solo Synchronized Swimming
I always thought that synchronized meant the swimmers themselves. Turns out that it just means that you must swim to the music. It is no wonder this sport only survived for 3 Olympics from 1984-1992.
The Steeple chase previously involved riding horses over obstacles between two towns but that has changed throughout the years. Now people just run a basic obstacle course. Maybe they can introduce a bear in the next Olympics to liven this event up a little bit.
Croquet & Roque
Croquet only showed up once in the 1900 games and for good reason. What other sport can make actually curling look exciting?
Because lifting weights with two hands is just too mainstream.
Jeu de Paume
A mix between tennis and racquetball, Jeu de Paume only appeared once in the 1908 Olympics as most countries don’t even have the indoor courts necessary to play the game.
Going strong since 1992, the kayak slalom pits paddlers against river rapids as they race to the finish.
Swimming, fencing, equestrian show jumping, a long-distance run, and pistol firing, this event began as a military training for cavalrymen.
From 1896-1932, the person who climbed up the rope the fastest went home with an Olympic medal. I guess that was good news for all the kids in gym class back in the day.
Ever seen a horse dance? Well you can at the Olympics.
No, not THAT kind of motorboating. Actual motorboat races.
Want to make fencing more exciting? Replace the épée, foil, or sabre and replace it with a large wooden cane.
Not fast enough for the actual race competitions? Look no further than the suburban housewife’s favorite event, race walking.
Plunge for Distance Swimming Race
Instead of actually swimming, all athletes had to do was remain motionless under the water for a full minute or until their head broke the surface of the pool. Not a surprise that this “sport” only lasted one year.
While a bracket with one lone survivor would be a good way to determine who goes home with the gold, participants only fired at stuffed dummies and not one another.
Trampolining was added in 2000 and remains as one of the three disciplines in the sport of gymnastics.
Go for gold in the Chivery’s collection of Summer Games tees. First place designs that’ll get you to the top of the podium.
