    That's Rhythmic Gymnastics, and it's hard, it's very hard.

    Rhythmic gymnasts aren't normal, they're exceptional.

    I don't think there are any "dumb events". Each event takes an incredible degree of skill and talent.

    And yes, most of the events are stupid nowdays, just like the Olympic games themselves.

    ^^^ Agreed. More than half of them shouldn't even be considered a sport to begin with...I find most of them unwatchable...synchronized diving?

    Good thing they're only every 4 years.....

    I enjoy the Olympics, especially when my country is playing. But i gotta agree, Equastrian in Olympics? Man, even sharp shooting shouldn't be there imo. In my eyes, Olympics should have athletes that train their bodies to the maximum, not their eye-hand coordination, it's just like calling poker a sport. BTW thank god poker isn't in Olympics yet, otherwise, i would lose hope in human kind.

    I think that the day poker is included in the Olympics, God should reach down and release every nuke on the planet.

    It bothers me that it's on sports channels to begin with, show a ******* minor league baseball game or something.

    ...except in this case, diving IS an Olympic sport.

    Trampoline.....what is this.....cheerleading tryouts? Sailing? As if anyone cares!

    Any "event" decided by judges is NOT a sport....I know that gymnastics has a long history at the Olympics and all but, I'm sorry, I will never view it as a sport. Same for figure skating, synchronized diving, diving and ice dancing.

    EXACTLY!
