The Tokyo Olympics (July 23 to Aug. 8) will feature five new disciplines: Surfing, Skateboarding, Climbing, 3×3 Basketball and Karate. What better excuse for wannabe skateboarders to get out there and work on their best tricks “before the Olympics”, or for surfers to catch some waves in support of their national team?

While it probably seemed unimaginable a few years ago to see these sports make it to the Olympics, here are some of the other activities that could follow in their footsteps in the coming decades.

Skipping rope, back to the old school

There are undoubtedly other sports that deserve a place on the Olympic podium. How about skipping rope or skipping rope, for example? You might think of it as an elementary school activity, but some pros are so good at the rope art that they really deserve a medal.

Stevens Jumpness, for example, is working up a sweat on TikTok with his 75,000 followers. Given his great technique, this Cirque du Soleil athlete is a gold medalist in the making.

Artistic roller skating, because who needs ice?

No less intense and just as impressive as figure skating, could roller dance or jam skating be a future Olympic sport? Mastering moves and shapes like the dreaded crazy legs, crab shuffle or center can be just as tricky as the most technical moves in fencing, rugby or swimming. Moreover, this sport is all the rage since the recent covid lockdowns.

While people are looking for a form of freedom – not to mention an accessible way of artistic expression that is also a lot of fun – quad roller skate sales are going through the roof.

Zorbing, rolling to gold

Another top pick for a new Olympic sport could be Zorbing, which basically involves rolling down a ramp in a giant rubber ball. It may sound crazy, but this sport undoubtedly requires some serious skills, such as a strong stomach, a taste for thrills and knowing how to keep your balance. Bring on the bulbs! IB
