Post-modern Olympics June 10, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Sports.

The International Olympic Committee is considering adding skateboarding as a discipline for the 2012 Olympiad in London, which should come as no surprise considering that BMX cycling has been added to the 2008 Games in Beijing.

The IOC wants to make the Olympics more relevant for young people, which is nice. That’s probably why it’s keeping speed walking and threatening to drop baseball. Makes perfect sense.
