    Good list, Some sort of Fat tire mountain biking could be cool for the winter Olympics. Here's a couple of pics of what I'm talking about from where I live.

    Working out is not a sport. It's preparation for a sport.

    Crossfit is for all the nerds who got dominated their whole lives who then realized that just by trying you can actually become formidable, and reasonably athletic. It's a wonderful refuge from legitimate competition.

    A really cool sport that most have never seen:



    It won't get put in because the nearly identical "Basque Pelota" was already tried in the Olympics, and washed out pretty quickly, but it is a very cool game. The record speed for the ball in a match is 188mph.

    I can't tell if he's satirizing Crossfit or the broscience bodybuilders who mock it, but I love the top video. I feel like he might be ridiculing both camps.

    Trivia: Wanna know what Crossfit really is?

    A business idea dreamed up in a schoolroom by a student collective at Harvard.
