|: Dammit!! If half pipe snowboarding is allowed to be an Olympic sport, then so should vertical roller skating.
I completely disagree. The Olympics would be very bad for this kind of sport. I think the Olympics are as far from their original ideals as possible. Also, going olympic would mean more reglementation. The athletes participating would be selected and trained from their early years on. Where would the fun be?
I talked to a snowboarder about this subject, not knowing that snowboarding has gone olympic. He first told me that is indeed olympic now and he also had the opinion that it wasn't for the good of snowboarding.
