1 Cut the number of contests in the Olympics by 90%, is my first suggestion.
For starters, any event that I have to rely on the commentators to tell me how well an athlete performed should be axed. Like most of those diving events. All the divers looked to me- and I imagine to other spectators- as having made a perfect dive. But then what do we know? It takes an expert on the commentator seat to zoom in and tell us that this one nailed it, or that one blew it by how much spray of water they kicked up.
2 I think gymanstics should be shelved. By which I mean those parallel bar nonesense, and those floor exercises.
The only kind of sports that should make the cut should be ones that are all about brute force. Running, boxing, team sports.
Does anyone have any ideas that can put some life back into the Olympics?
