Bullshit, some people are born with a good arm(baseball) or a good leg(soccer). Some sports, like golf and curling, take practice and time, while some sports have what we like to call "gifted" players, people able to play because they have a good kick or throw, WITHOUT practicing.

Um, people arent born with the ability to throw a baseball 100 mph with dead accuracy. Or shoot a jumpshot from 30 feet away. EVERY sport takes practice.

Edit: wOOt, I'm no longer a newcomer... bwahahahahaha.

Half the people get recognized because they throw ONE BALL, the FIRST BALL they have ever kicked/thrown/shot. Look at Randy Moss, or LeBron James. Both were recognized because they got lucky, and now look at what they have become?


Ok, I'm done posting off-topic. I think all sports are equal enough in some way to be in the olympics. Plain and simple.
