no, it's boring to watch, and overrun with cheating. It's also not extreme in any way.

x games are kinda more about doing 'xtreme' stuff on what would otherwise be a mode of transportation. Like bikes, skateboards and cars. I think we are actually more of an 'olympian' sport but we don't have a format that would make any sense to a new audience (like millions that have never seen it). Either way the olympics have not just the races and athleticism they have team sports and even shooting games already

and there is also biathlon in the winter olympics, which is an absurdly difficult event.

Experts call it a strategy game modelled on the lines of real war, where players are divided into teams and have to complete a mission in real time war situations. The only difference is that instead of bullets you use paint balls that explode on impact splashing the victim with coloured dye. Once a player is hit he or she is eliminated from the game.

Sounds extreme 2 me.

Instead of a fatal bullet wound, players use paint balls that splash the victim with colored dye. If the victim is sneaky, he can wipe off the shot and go right back into battle! Sounds real extreme lol.

It's not an extreme sport at all. Just because we look like motocross riders doesn't mean we're extreme. The most dangerous move you can make is a dive which maybe involves the risk of some mild rug burn. It's about as extreme as baseball when you get right down to it.

It's fun to play, but it's boring as hell to watch.

You can twist the words around on anything and make it sound gay.

Football is a bunch of men watching other big men groping each other while commentators hang from their nuts.
