Tug-Of-War, Chess, Ultimate Frisbee, and Bowling Applied to Be in the Olympics
New sports can apply to be in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, and Friday was the deadline. There were 26 proposals, some of them are pretty ridiculous.
Here's the list of sports that have applied:
- Air sports
- Dance Sport
- Flying Disc
- Roller Sports
- Sport Climbing
- Underwater Sports
- Waterski and Wakeboard
The committee in charge of the Tokyo Olympics gets to decide if any of them actually get added. If any have a chance, it's probably baseball or softball, which were part of the Olympics from 1996 to 2008.
