No. 10 – 10 M Platform Diving
The criteria… Whomever can make the smallest splash usually wins. Now that’s entertainment.
No. 9 – Soccer
Since the USA dominates basketball, Soccer wins the most exciting team sport at the Olympics.
No. 8 – Women’s Synchronized Swimming
The ballet of the pool is one of the most loved events because we all do it when we’re on vacation at the hotel pool to entertain our parents.
No. 7 – Rowing Single / Double Sculls
Rowing is becoming more exciting because of all the great advances in filming technology. With aerials from helicopters, a trolley cam following the leaders, and country flags superimposed on the water to identify the rowers, this is a really fun event to watch.
No. 6 – 4 x 400 Meter Relay
As no one stands a chance to beat the Jamaicans in the 4 x 100, the 4 x 400 is a little more exciting.
No. 5 – High Jump
The high jump represents the Olympics as the game of centimeters. The World Record is 8 feet high… can you believe that?
No. 44 – Beach Volleyball
If anything else, this event is just so much fun cause it’s at the beach. It will be really cool when the Olympics adds Footvolley, beach volleyball with soccer moves only.
No. 3 – Gymnastics
Ever since Mary Lou Retton landed a must-needed perfect 10 on the vault to win the Gold Medal for the USA back in the 80s… this event has been known to make everyone’s heart melt.
No. 2 – 25 Meter Swimming Freestyle
It’s the fastest and most exciting event in the pool. It only lasts about 25 seconds!
No. 1 – 100 Meter Sprint
Everyone wants to know who is the fastest person in the world so the 100 m sprint shows us the answer. Do you know who the fastest man in the world is? He can run the 100 m sprint in 9.58 seconds.
