Default The next Olympics sport?

http://www.rt.com/sport/362800-pole-...g-at-olympics/
Extract: The International Pole Sports Federation (IPSF) has submitted an application to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to be recognized as a fully-fledged sport.
The IPSF's Olympic Sub-Committee has been working on its submission for the last five months, with its case boosted after it was officially confirmed as a signatory of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Code.


With photos, for those who don't know what pole dancing is. And the good news is, it's not just for Polish people!

Why not, if prancing around with a ribbon is a "sport"?

There used to be an old joke: Why does Mexico always do poorly in the Olympics swimming events? Because every Mexican that can swim is living in the USA...

A bit rude, and non-PC, but most jokes are, I guess.
