Lots of walking on hands in the pommel horse discipline.
exactly, when I watch the olympics I want to see a fat man chucking a heavy thing or carbon fibre spear down range. How's an umpire gunna get injured in climbing? Useless...
Walking - fair game I say, when else is it on telly? Unique in that it's the only athletics event that is in effect judged on maintaining perfect form.
The problem I have with the walking event is that it's a shit version of running.

Just watched 10 minutes of dressage. How it's an Olympic 'sport' goes beyond me.
I think this may be the solution - combined sports! Dressage + Archery, Walking and skeet shooting (bit like winter duathlon)....
The modern pentathlon is an Olympic sport that comprises five very different events: fencing, 200m freestyle swimming, show jumping, and a final combined event of pistol shooting, and a 3200m cross-country run.
Sorry for the FB link, but not heard this anywhere else yet.
