13 Olympic Events That Struck Out

Rope Climbing/Tug of War

Think rope climbing is silly? Yeh, but I bet you hate it during gym class. It was an Olympic event until 1936. Tug of war was contested from 1900 to 1920. I think they should bring it back but draw a team randomly from a country's other athletes. Can you imagine a figure skater and somebody from the curling team pulling against a bobsledder and snowboarder? I'd watch that.
