What Olympic Event Would You Be Worst At?

So, rather than Olympic events you'd be good at... what would you be really bad at?

I think out of everything I've seen over the last week the only things I couldn't do to any degree even with practice would be the pole vault in the athletics. I wouldn't have the nerve to go up that high on a pole.

Equestrian, AINEC.

Gymnastics would be second.

I can't think of any I'd be good in

I'd say weighlifting b/c I a lot of trouble developing upper body strength - I don't know how the women weightlifters do it. I'd also probably be really bad a gymnastics.

I forgot gymnastics too. I might be able to do the pommel horse but I think my arms would snap at the rings or the parallel bars.

Ever see the kid running for the vault and going face first? That'd be me. I'd also put an arrow into the stands, take a ping pong off the coconut, and thrash up myself on the biking.

Gymnastics, all athletics instead of medium-long distance running, archery, water polo, volleyball, basketball, 'throwing events', cycling (can barely ride a bike), martial arts/boxing, weightlifting, gymnastics, canoeing/rowing, diving, equestrian (would be too scared of falling to get on a horse...), triathlon,

My best sports would probably be medium distance running, badminton, football, freestyle short distance swimming, table tennis, and regular tennis.

Maybe marathon, but I've never been able to run that far before, that's probably because I'm too lazy though. I think I'd be very good at 1500m, 5000m or 3000m steeplechase.

Look if you start out at an early enough age and practice day in and day out most of us could become pretty competent in any sporting discipline.

That's what it all boils down too. After a while for the competitors their discipline becomes second nature to them.

Think I'd able to at least hit the board in Archery.

I'd be terrible at Swimming though. Went this morning and was tired after 25m.

Anything that requires flexibility and(or) moving your body around in the air:

Gymnastics, pole vaulting, high jump, diving, synchronized swimming.

I guess Equestrian stuff I would suck at too because I've never been on a horse in my life despite relatives and family friends basically owning ranches.

The marathon because I hate running and the few times I do run I only do sprints.

Also pole vault because I would crap my pants the second I get in the air.
