Five new sports have been added to the Olympics for 2028, in L.A.
There have been some odd, and unusual Olympic sports that have been in an out of the Olympics over time. And some different and unusual sports being considered, and added, as we speak.
Odd Olympic Sports Over The Ages:
The Biathlon has always been an interesting pairing of two sports: Skiing, and shooting. Two totally different mindsets – let’s put them together! Totally zen cross country skiing, and then they shoot targets to shreds!
Croquet, tug-of-war, poodle clipping, town planning (according to Casino.org) – yes, I said town planning – they were all once Olympic sports. But the one that just might be the most fun to watch, is the one you used to do as kids: Race walking. When you would race your friend to a particular point, but ‘no running.’ So you’d walk, arms flailing, as fast as you could!
New Sports Being Considered For Future Olympics
Pole Fitness has become very popular as a workout. So have Pole Fitness Competitions. There is a big push from competitors to get this into the Olympics. If you have seen Pole Fitness teachers and pros, there is a lot of strength and a lot of acrobatics involved.
Pickleball is probably one of the fastest growing sports. I wouldn’t doubt if one day this racquet sport might be in the Olympics. Tennis, badminton, ping-pong (table tennis in the Olympics).
The 2024 Olympics are just around the corner, and the Paris backdrop looks to be spectacular, from the preview we saw at the end of the 2022 Winter Olympics.
Breakdancing And Cricket Are Coming To An Olympics Near You:
The Paris Olympics will feature some new sports: Skateboarding, surfing, sport climbing, and breaking – better known to us as break-dancing. Which you’d think might have made it in back in the 90’s.
There will also be five sports added to the 2028 Olympics, in Los Angeles, according to the International Olympic Committee. Two are new, three have come and gone – and now they are back!
