I am SO excited to watch Andrew Ford compete at the Olympic Games in London... in the not too distant future. Maybe thats because I've swam with him so I feel we're buddies now. Hehe... anyhow, :P with the Canadian Olympic team in London now, to get ready for the games, we are reminded of our old favourites. Gymnastics, swimming, and track and field. There are some different ones too, like archery, equestrian, and canoeing or kayaking. Looking ahead, Golf has been added for 2016, and baseball has been taken out. It’s probably good that some sports have been taken out. Did you know that Tug of War was actually an Olympic sport, back in the early 1900’s. Rope climb was an Olympic sport too! So it DOES pay off to do it in gym class. NOT. Dueling pistols was another one. I can see why that one was discontinued. Along the same lines was live pigeon shooting, which was contested for obvious reasons. Hot air ballooning was almost an Olympic sport, and solo synchronized swimming, which doesn’t even make sense, was an Olympic sport for a while too. Haha it will be interesting to see what could possibly come next.
