When you get down to it most of the Olympic gymnastic competitions are a bit odd. After all gymnasts compete on a horse. Is a pole so different than the parallel bars except perhaps in orientation?
I think the luge, which involves dressing up as an inflatable sex doll and riding down the slope on a skateboard at high speed, looks a bit dodgy.
My favorite Olympic sport is the biathlon, combining shooting and cross country skiing. The guy in first place always knows that the dude just behind him has a rifle and is a crack shot. Now that is competition.
