I would imagine because it's not a sport mate, it's a very energetic dancing/art form, it's certainly very skillful and it encompasses some gymnastical abilities but where do you draw the line? Will we see Olympic ballet/tango/waltzing/Morris dancing in future events? Tbh it wouldn't surprise me.

Those two are definitely sports and ones I'd watch too. I agree with you 100% about both of them, I'd enjoy watching surfing in particular.

Huh

Both surfing and climbing were included in the Olympics for the first time this year.

I know, those were some of the ones SYZ was complaining about.

Can I suggest for the next Olympics the IOC includes skydiving, water skiing,  lawn bowling, paintball, SCUBA diving,
hang gliding, fishing, pilates, Monopoly, speed-reading, cheese making, poetry, and stamp collecting?
