    Sambo an Olympic sport in 2010?

    I heard that Sambo is going to become an olympic sport in 2010. Okay, okay... I didn't "hear" that perse' but I did read it on wikipedia! I think...

    Someone who is smarter than me tell me if Sambo will be an olympic sport in 2010. I don't know what the **** an olypic trial is. WHAT THE **** IS A 2010 TRIAL!?

    I doubt it will be a sport in the 2010 Olympics because those are winter games. The next summer games are in 2012

    They'll need to remove a few sports before any new ones are added. Away with baseball and we are set to go!

    The Olympics have been cracking down on combative sports in general. China's attempt at making Sanda a demonstration sport was rejected and even the wording in the rulesets for judo and boxing changed "fighters" to "players".

    The Olympic committee stated a few years ago that they wouldn't add another "jacket" combat sport. Also the rule set of Sambo is similar to Judo so I really doubt it would be allowed.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    Nope, nope, nope

    The IOC is a political beast sombo, pankration, whatever, not going to happen. Judo and sombo are too close for the average viewer to know what sets them apart. Not to mention, as a Sombo player, I don't want sombo in the Olympics, look what it did to judo.
    Less ground work the addition of the minor points etc etc etc.....
