#15

I was going to generalize it further… Anything combined with equestrian – make those lazy riders earn their medals.


#16

My wife loves equestrian so I watched many of the events.

One of the commentators for NBC (they weren’t even in Rio! They were providing commentary from CT via satellite feed) mentioned how the horses travel first class just like the riders. I was like, “well they sure as hell should!”.


#17

Velodrome javelin.
Cycle and throw that spear, go!!!


#18

You could do a triathlon with shooting and archery. Last cyclist standing wins.
