We've already compiled our best medal hopes for the Rio 2016 Olympics, so now it's time to look even further ahead.
In total, 26 new sports are being considered for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and while the bast majority will be laughed off, they ARE being considered.
Here are seven sports that would be really, really weird to see on the Olympic stage.
Yes, that card game that your beloved Granny used to play with her friends while they talk about Coronation Street and their new lavender pillow-cases is actually being considered for the 2020 Olympic games.
No, it's not a bizarre sport, but it's inclusion in the Olympic games would be just that. Bizarre. Why? Because it's essentially like the Irish Olympic association lobbying for the inclusion of Hurling.
Even if they banned professionals from competing, the absolute domination of the USA would mean that the tournament highlights would look like this:
It would be a free gold medal for the USA, and it wouldn't even be close.
It's like Netball, but weirder. This is a Dutch game that involves four men and four women on each team trying to score points by throwing a ball into a really tall hoop with no backboard.
Tug Of War
Ok, this is the first one we are really on board with. Tug Of War used to be an Olympic sport, and it would be pretty damn cool to see teams of the biggest and strongest men try to make another similarly large team look stupid.
This one isn't exactly a bizarre sport, but it's inclusion in the Olympic games would be very strange. Good strange. It would be pretty cool to see the best orienteering in the World, but how would you televise what is essentially map reading and problem solving, unless they take on some sort of Crystal Maze format. Now that would be cool, and surely Ireland would be in with a shout.
We don't know either. According to Wikipedia, Wushu is "both an exhibition and a full-contact sport derived from traditional Chinese martial arts", and according to YouTube, Wushu is this:
So Break-dance karate then? Surely traditional Chinese martial arts would put the Chinese at a bit of an advantage? A quick google search shows that there is a UCD Wushu society, so maybe Ireland would have a shout after all.

What sports aren't included in the Olympics that you wish were up for consideration? Or are there too many events as it is?
