Ok so the other day I was on Facebook and someone I know put up this status…
So I don’t really understand why beach volleyball is an Olympic sport. I know it is a sport but there really needs to be some sort of Olympic standard (synchronized swimming and diving along with rhythmic gymnastics also in the category. Not saying they are not hard but . . .)
To which I replied…
Really?!?! Are you serious? Why shouldn’t these sports be Olympic sports? These athletes work just as hard as any other athlete if not harder. That’s like saying that Cheerleading is not a sport and it most definitely is! I’m sorry but I totally 100% DISAGREE with you on this!
Get the fuc******!!!!!
What really got me about this is the fact that the person who put this up is someone who organizes and leads Special Olympics where they live.
I was floored!
Don’t get me wrong I believe that EVERYONE is entitled to their own thoughts and opinions about things but I just feel like for someone like this who again is active in Special Olympics and other things to that nature it makes them look naive.
I read the rest of the feed on this status and other people agreed with this person and other people went on to say that sports like archery, equestrian, and table tennis should not be Olympic sports either.
I say there is no reason why each and every one of the sports mentioned above and those that were not mentioned should be an Olympic sport! These athletes work their tails off to get where they are and they sure as hell deserve to be there representing their respective country!
