Swimming Obstacle Race, for example, would probably get huge television ratings. Especially if a few Wipe Out-style elements were added.
Here are eleven quirky summer sports that have been discontinued by the Olympics, that will totally be revived in my own backyard this summer. A few will need some minor improvements; Lightsaber Swinging is a little more appealing than boring old Club Swinging, I think. Plus, we actually have lightsabers on hand. We do not seem to have any bowling pin-looking things lying around.
And some, of course, will need to be adapted. We don’t have the River Seine for our Swimming Obstacle course, unfortunately. Instead, just dump every single pool toy you have into the pool. Voila!
