I will sign right now. Thanks for the effort.
i don't think disc golf will be in the olympics for a long long time. everyone mentioning ping pong being an olympic sport as a reason disc golf should already be doesn't understand that game. so many countries have table tennis in every school/ every gym etc. and its been that way for a long time. we (the US) have about the least participation in the sport when compared with other countries. in disc golf we have the most by far. not too long ago i saw a list of the top 20 ranked players...18 of them listed the US as their country. i'm not saying it won't happen, but i don't think disc golf needs to be in the olympics at all either.
olympic sports are almost all standardized sports: the field is an exact size, the track an exact length, the trapeze bars exact heights, etc. this is great for setting records and honing one's skills, but not so great for a sport with so much variability on the floor before anyone even starts playing. lets just have our world championships during the olympics like we did this year. olympics are great for some sports, but that the reason for that greatness couldn't be applied to disc golf imo.
