/ 2020 Olympics
Sports Pro Media are hosting a poll on which new sport should make it into the olympics.
To vote for sport climbing... and knock roller-sports off the top spot, would you take a few seconds to go to:
(had to use a shorteneer because the forums wouldnt accept a full length url)
No registration required!
Seems most are quite happy for roller sports to be top
But if it's a vote - then majority rules.
If people want to take things to a vote, then they have to accept the outcome, regardless.
The one time I've watched proper comp climbing its been anything but boring, as it goes. It's a world apart from watching ledge shuffly trad ascents!
The slightly weird comments referenced on the other thread aside, I think increasing the amount that climbing is seen as a sport would be a good thing in terms of the quality of training facilities and the approach to and knowledge of training and coaching. It would help those of us who want to push our own limits to better do so.
Thanks for the heads up. Voted for squash.
Me too. I'm surprised its doing so badly in the poll.
Done. Roller sports? Pah.
