It will not be dropped after all. They also made changes to rules to make it easier to watch and not so arbitrary. I was seriously considering never watching the Olympics again had it been removed. So in the future, I suggest they determine which sports stay based on history, rules, species, universal appeal, and athleticism. If it's not a sport, ie there's no clear objective winner, then it's out. Wrestling: oldest sport. Has to stay. Baseball/Softball: not enough countries play, MLB won't suspend season, Out Golf: unathletic, Out. Synchonized swimming, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Artistic Gymnastics, Figure Skating, Diving: not sports. Winner is determined by judges using an arbitrary system and is highly prone to corruption. Equestrian: Not humans competing but horses. Out, let them start the horse Olympics. Any others you feel should be in or out? Note: I placed this here since there's no longer and All-Sports forum and it would just get moved from the football forum.
