i agree totally with Itchyes and add football and a few others to the blacklist. if a olympic competition doesn’t even have a chance in fighting to be the most prestigious competition for that particular sport, it shouldn’t be there and normally isn’t. so, off tennis, off golf (really? golf is there? damn!), off football.
ans I guess this answers to the very good point raised by iamsa8 over equistrian competition on olympics, because it’s the horse who performs and the rider ability could be equiparated to the drivers ability on a racing car. But on the horses case, the Olympics Equistrian Competition is the most prestigious one they can achieve and win, and on motorsport it could never be like that. And there’s also tradition, of course.
