Add: I’m gonna go with Antigen and say squash.
I’m not sure that anything really needs to be added, but i believe that more than one need to be dropped.
I’d certainly get rid of tennis. As ticker said, the huge prestige and popularity of the regular pro tour makes it rather pointless to have it in the Olympics.
Soccer. There’s already a World Cup every four years that serves the purpose perfectly well.
I’m also tempted to say baseball and basketball, but there are plenty of countries where these games aren’t as big as they are in the US, and the Olympics represents that onlychance for those players to play on a world stage.
My final one is probably gonna get me flamed, but anyway. I’ve always been of the opinion that there should be no sports where the results are determined by subjective judgements rather than actual measurements of highest, fastest, strongest, etc. This would eliminate all gymnastics, high diving, and synchronized swimming. While i certainly appreciate the skill and athleticism that go into these sports, and i actually like watching them (well, except synch swimming), the subjectivity of the judging makes them inherently suspect, IMO. I feel the same about figure skating in the winter Olympics.
And to those who are saying add rugby and/or cricket:
Don’t cheapen the excellent world competitions that these sports already have just for the sake of being in the Olympics.
