The season continues in Colombia! Don't miss the world's best BMX riders fighting in a thrilling event for the honor of becoming the 2022 UCI BMX Racing World Cup Champion and the chance of becoming an Olympian.
The Olympics have evolved a lot over the years. The Games have gone from being a purely Greek test of sporting aptitude to something that encompasses the entire world. However, there are still a number of sports out there that don’t get the recognition that they deserve, and in some cases are ignored completely. Discover which sports we feel are unfairly overlooked and should be a bigger part of the Olympic Games as a whole.
Baseball Look, baseball probably isn’t that popular around the world. We understand that, but that doesn’t mean it should be completely ignored. In fact, when you compare baseball to a lot of the other sports that are featured at the Olympics, it’s much more popular – not just on US soil, but on a global level. It isn’t just so the US could bag more medals, either. While favorite MLB picks would possibly include some of the stronger players, there are more than enough athletes out there who can hit a ball and catch a ball to make it quite an even competition.
In fact, it could help to bring baseball to a wider audience and even potentially lead to a truly worldwide World Series at some point in the future. Baseball used to be played at the Olympics, so there is no reason why it can’t make the step back to being part of the Games again.
