what do you think?
Beach volleyball, are you taking the p***.Next it'll be olympic ollies, or olympic tap dancing. Some events just aren't a measure of human ability. Horse riding events are particularly unworthy of the Olympics. That's no measure of human ability. Obviously slotted in for the toffs, but isn't everything made for them ??
WHYnot have sold them all first time around , obviosly someone is making a lot of extra money by doing it the way they have , seems pathetic ( just as playing silly games are )
Who cares ???
