    I swear they were going to introduce the sport of sleep. I would win every time. Or chess I might stand a chance there.

    I know a girl who aspires to play table tennis. Her training is ridiculous we used to make fun of her a bit in music, but she spends about an hour every day training for table tennis, she does running planking and push ups etc. to train for table tennis! Apparently it's harder than it looks at pro level.

    Summer games: track cycling (would enjoy most) or shooting (most likely to do well). Though I was half decent at long jump when younger.

    Winter games: GS skiing or speed skating

    Rowing. Men's eight (since I have never been in one), Men's Quad or the Men's Four. Either of these 3 would be cool. Painful and exhausting but cool.

    Badminton or any long distance running event.
    I loved the freedom I used to get from my bullies in high school when we used to do anything long distance as I was just so much better than them and had 15 minutes of blissfulness where I was on my own towards the front and they'd be pulling up the rear
    I hear you sister.

    Table tennis is. It's usually won by ping and pong which is why it won't get much coverage in Britain.

    But if you did then it would be a thousand times more humiliating/hot.

    Basically any rowing discipline with enough people in the boat so that you don't have to work as hard?
