Because I’m married to a crazy person, I’ve been hearing his ideas for new Olympic events - like combining trampoline and archery. Can’t see how that can fail…
But I thought - why not? Let’s see what we can do to add some extra ZING to the competitions in 2016 and beyond and maybe make them more applicable to today’s society.
My suggestion - the Textathalon. Participants run, jump, throw, shoot, and swim, but between each leg of the event, they must post photos and a comment on Facebook. Points deducted for blurry pictures and overuse of smilies.
I also considered adding a parallel parking event, but that might be unfair to nations that don’t have many cars. On the other hand, we could get the automotive equivalent of the Jamaican bobsled team.
Your turn! Bonus points if your suggestion requires cool gear!
Good morning, and Happy Monday!!!
