    If you're batshit into risk there's massive money to be made (or lost) day trading bitcoin and other crypto currencies.

    Has been my hobby for the last five years or so.

    See, fantastic possibilities with no drawbacks at all.

    Will even encourage children to take up swimming AND running or pole vault.

    Gymnastic long dive? Off a vault?

    Triple jump long dive?

    Prob best that the pool has a thick crust of something in top to allow judges to measure accurately from the hindmost point of entry. Or maybe lasers can do that.

    10m platform long dive. 3m springboard long dive. Cowards can do the standing long dive.

    The excitement as the athletes start their run up to jump at speed off a wet diving board will only be beaten by the excitement of how big a belly flop they are willing to (literally) stomach.

    I'm going to invent and pioneer the sport of long diving. How could it not be a success?

    One club I used to play at doesn't allow jeans in the club house.

    Could be worse though, they have only just allowed women to join.

    Just did a bit of googling. A few sources suggest that around 60 million people play golf at least once a year across the globe.

    I don't know think that many people watch golf regularly in the UK. About 1.5m people watched each British open highlight show on the BBC last year. I assume the Ryder cup or the masters get bigger figures.

    Yup. Cost of entry to golf is actually surprisingly low. You don't even need to buy golf clubs or adhere to a dress code as many local courses are pretty welcoming and inclusive now days.

    I know a few peoole who are learning golf at the moment. Group lessons make it even cheaper.

    I think it's a pretty good idea to include golf, one of the most watched and played sports into the world, in the Olympics.
