Subject: Re: Public Vote for New Olympics Sports
I think the idea is good. People could vote in a variety of ways. If you attend the Olympics, there could be voting cards at each venue. People who are not able to attend could vote via a web or by requesting the same voter card from their gov.

Subject: Feasibility of the voting
Depending on what part of the public gets a vote, the voting arrangements might not be that feasible. After all, it's Olympics and small countries where people don't hang around on the internet should get to vote too.

How about sumo-gymnastics, rollerblade-pole vaulting, synchronized marathon running?
I think its a cool idea to vote on what sports to include.
We could also vote in general on sport rules like those for football, basketball etc.

excellent idea. How about Olympic binge drinking. The winner being the one who can drink the most super strength lager in the shortest time.
