Well, Pole Dancing has a "Gymnastics" aspect to it. Maybe it could be added to the Olympics. I know I would never miss a telecast!!!! Think of all the men viewers that would be gained from the Pole Dance event.
Well, they are very active. I have 27 heavily wooded mountain acres and these "kids" are bikers. We changed the rules around a bit so it is a lot like fighting an army of zombies. It really is an "active sport". Thank you for your wonderful input.
On a personal level, it could be either. However, if you have ever played paintball you know how strenuous and athletic it can be. Since there are organized teams, tournaments and even pro tours, I think it would have to be considered a sport.
