Last weekend I spend a few hours watching the Olympics. I don’t know why but the curling event caught my attention. It’s an interesting game but I have one question. Why are there a women’s team and a men’s team? There isn’t any inherent strength involved that would give men an advantage over women. And there are not any points given to style or grace so women would not enjoy an advantage over men like in figure skating.
I think that the Olympics would be much more interesting if they would have more (I can’t name any) mixed sports. Curling seems to be a perfect place to start.
I wonder what other sports would be good to mix it up a bit?
