Top 3 Summer Olympic "sports" that suck

There is a long list of so-called sport in the Olympics that aren't even really sports. I'm not saying they don't require skills or some athletic ability, just that they do not belong in the Olympics. Any "sport" that has judges for "artistic impression" or form needs to go away!

My choices:

3. synchronized swimming/diving
2. rhythmic gymnastics of any kind
1. dressage.

I love everything horses, but I have to agree with you. Dressage just doesn't do it for me. I'm sure it takes a great amount of skill for the horse and rider to communicate, but...

Gymnastics floor routine, I do enjoy... mostly. It always bothers me that it is so choppy- half dance routine, pause, running and flipping- it's just a strange one.

I'm with you Chris. Half those "sports" are totally bogus. It cheapens it for the real athletes.

Table tennis?? Come on!
