I heard on the news the other day that they're thinking about making pole dancing an Olympic sport. Pole dancing? Really? I always thought of the Olympics as having family friendly competitions, but pole dancing doesn't fit into that category. Does it?
Pole dancing for athletic purposes doesn't have to involve the moves you're thinking about. In many cases, their feet don't even touch the ground and it looks like a form of gymnastics. I know I could never do it.
There is pole dancing (for sport) that has worldwide competitions by the way and there is everyone's assumption of pole dancing which involves half naked ladies climbing it for tips. It is actually a widely recognized sport but people are pretty stereotypical and closed minded about it. I say if ping pong can go Olympic, anything can.
