Four Summer Olympic Sports You Probably Didn’t Know Existed
Not going to lie, I had no idea these events existed either! If I would have known some of these were sanctioned sports then I probably wouldn't be working in radio! HA just kidding... probably not.
Badminton - comprised of five events: women's single, men's singles, women's doubles, men's doubles and mixed doubles. Those events will be taking place on August 11th if you are watching the summer Olympics.
Golf - I know of most of the major tournaments but I don't think I ever realized that people actually compete in the Olympics for a gold metal in golfing! This event is pretty straight forward. Men's and women's golf rounds.
Trampoline - Men's and women's trampolining will take place on August 12th and 13th, respectively. Athletes will be judged on form and execution, degree of difficulty, variety of elements and the continuous flow of the routine. This is one of the events I would LOVE to try!
Taekwondo - This event is competed in different weight classes and by genre, male and female. All events including metaled rounds will take place on August 17th.
