    Heard they were going to have No Gi grappling in the next Olympics. I'm wondering what your thoughts are on this.

    That would be shocking, seeing as the next olympics are in only a few months...

    Yeah, I'm going to have to call bullshit on this. I'm confident somebody here would have heard about this.

    Not even close to being true.....The process to get a sport into the Olympics starts about 8 years out. FILA is just getting organized with Grappling but there maybe a chance for the 2016/2020 games.

    2016? 2020?! How fucking long does it take for a bunch of old people to sit around a table and say "yes, this is a sport, we shall add it to the Olympics." ?!

    If they can find enough competitors to make ribbon dancing, trampolining, curling, etc olympic sports i think finding enough grapplers internationally shouldn't be a problem :icon_chee
