Lightbulb If Paintball HAD to Replace a Sport to get into the Olympics, which would you chose?!

Hey Nation!

Today is the first major day of the Olympics and I got to looking at the scheduled events and their times.

During this searching, I noticed many sports that I could not believe had a slot in the Olympics and Paintball still doesn't have one. Now I know there are many deciding factors that allow a sport to be in the Olympics, but if Paintball could only get into the Olympics by replacing a sport already in it, which one would you chose and why?

Oh yea!

I would chose Water Polo for obvious reasons.... I just don't see how that is a sport

Behind that would be Table Tennis.... I just don't see how that gets national recognition either.

I think there is definitely a chance there could be a negative outcome... but if the players went about it the correct way it could turn out to be something great for the sport

So if you play a sport, you automatically think it should be worthy of the Olympics?


Paintball in the Olympics is the dream of 14 year olds who jerk off to pictures of Egos and Ollie Lang.

I like paintball, it's a fun game, but it has no place in the olympics.

Haha trolls need to GTFO. Sorry I was bored at work watching the Olympics and the idea popped into my head.

And you all say paintball isn't worthy of the Olympics? Here we go:

How is SPEEDWALKING worthy? Yes, it's a real event. Table Tennis.... come on, yea I know those guys are good but that means it should have national recognition?.. Let's not forget Badminton, we all need to make sure we have the best national team in that one.

It might be far fetched and I obviously know there is almost no chance of it happening, but I guess I should have made it clear in the OP for some of you.

BTW, Paintball is definitely worthy of the X Games besides the fact there are no wheels involved.
