Personally I find it more impressive than curling, but at least curling has a point system. How can ones dancing be objectively scored?
Olympic beer pong is getting more and more likely during our lifetime.

Personally I’m against any “sport” whose result is open to interpretation being a part of the olympics.
Don’t think synchronised swimming or diving should be there and I’m 50/50 on gymnastics.
The faster, longer, higher, stronger not wickedest, sickest, prettiest, awesomest
Edit to add that I’m not saying skateboarders, breakdancers, climbers, divers or especially gymnasts aren’t brilliant athletes, they are, they’re fricken amazing and I’m constantly awed by what they can do.
I’m just saying that that a sport whose result could be affected by human bias or doesn’t have an easily quantifiable result probably shouldn’t be part of the olympics.

If they can have curling, I don't see why the others can't be in there.
I'd be interested to see what the minimum required moves for breakdancing would be. And would it be scored like figure skating? Got to keep the kids interested in the Olympics.
The French Fencing Federation has recognized lightsaber dueling as an official sport
We might not be seeing lightsaber dueling turned into an official Olympic sporting event anytime soon, but as an attempt to get newcomers into fencing, you could do a lot worse.
Free-diving, (breath-hold diving), or skin diving is a form of underwater diving that relies on breath-holding until resurfacing rather than the use of breathing apparatus such as scuba gear.
