u know I dont see baseball being an olympic sport. I mean here in SA the sport is practically extinct! only in USA & China it has a huge following
Athletics is probably the biggest sport in the world when you really think about it. In some countries such as African or Carribean countries athletics are all that they have. Not to mention it is the easiest sport in the world to train for since all you need is a good patch of land and you can just start running.rantanamo said:And if world popularity is the reason to not be an olympic sport, then 75% of the competitions in the Olympics should go away.

I thought golf should be re-instated, it's pretty global.Zorba said:IMO the only (Summer)Olympic sports should be:
Swimming and Diving
Field Hockey(actually very popular world wide)
Gymnastics(take rythmic gymnastics out)
They can cancel building the softball and baseball fields. The two sports are off the Olympic menu from now on.
Maybe they can be adjusted for cricket which is bigger in Asia.

What is China's problem with animals? They don't seem to like them very much!!! I prefer animals to humans!!General Huo said:IF any event would be removed from Beijing Olympics, first it definitely will be equestrian. Hey, we Chinese believe Olympics is the competition for human beings, not for other animals. equestrian should go to Circus Olympics.
That's why the only event that China has never participated in all previous Olympic games is equestrian, and equestrian will be held in Hong Kong in Beijing 2008 game.

I think you do. Do you have any pets? I have 4, 2 dogs and 2 cats, they are my pride and joy!! If you try and eat them then I will have to take you down!!General Huo said:So you should go to circus or zoo, not to watch Olympics.
China has no problem with animals. We know where they belong to.
I do not eat dogs and cats, because I think they are not taste good. I eat pork, beef, chicken, duck, fish, and any animals that taste well.bubomb said:I think you do. Do you have any pets?
