    I once watched synchronised swimming when I was high and I can honestly say it was amazing.

    Any sport that requires makeup or pageantry (figure skating, women's gymnastics, synchronized swimming).

    And the steeple chase.

    Any sport where Olympic gold isn't the #1 prize e.g. football, golf

    Cut some swimming. Coverage for that goes on forever and is repetitive as hell for the viewer

    I think you need to keep some of the X-Games stuff in the Olympics. Slopestyle and halfpipe are two of the most entertaining events, especially now that the NHL is out of the hockey game. My vote goes to ice dancing, it's like the dressage of winter. Also, is the Trampoline still a thing? I vote that too.
