Which sport should be in Olympics but isn't?

Recommended Posts

Is there a sport that isn't in the Olympics but should be?

I think that baseball is finally back in the Olympics for 2021 if I read the headline correctly? That's the one I was going to say until I searched.

There are sports/games that used to be in the Olympics but now are not because of lack of entrants...cricket is one such game.

Squash, It is included in both the Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games, receiving great following and accolade for it as well. Furthermore, it is a game that can be played all year round and would benefit well from the Olympics by reaching a broader geographic demograph and therefore further its popularity (something the IOC consider). I have long been unable to understand why the IOC don’t include it and my best guess is that there aren’t enough bribes travelling in the right direction.

I hope the olympics sticks to physical competition or else it becomes a guinness world record event where pie eating is accepted. 

There is so much intellectual training involved in competitive chess. It's definitely a lot more interesting pie eating.

I like Chess, it's great to play but imo it's not so great to watch, especially for people who don't understand it.

I'm not 100% sure but I think golf is not an Olympic sport? If not, then I think that would be quite a good addition to the Olympics. It would be interesting to watch and actually requires a lot of concentration and skill so it would be a well-deserved addition.
