DYK – Olympic Addition

In honor of Opening Ceremony of the Rio Games tonight, today’s DYK is dedicated to the Olympics.

“Tug of war was an Olympic event between 1900 and 1920.”

I wish I was around to witness what may have been my favorite sport to watch outside of swimming.  My question is why was this ever removed as an Olympic sport?  Think about it, you could have men’s tug of war, women’s tug of war, it could be an individual sport, and like wrestling, you could have different weight classes.  The possibilities are endless.

Who’s with me in petitioning the IOC to bring back Olympic Tug of War!?
