2012 Olympics Unicycle Hockey

I heard someone say a while back, cant remember who but they said that Unicycle Hockey was being put forward as one of the new sports for 2012,

just wondered this is true and if anything has come out of it

or am i just being completely gullable

cheers Lucas

Yeh I thought it sounded stupid but apparently every olympics they do a vote and introdue a between 1-4 new sports and I think unicycle hockey was probably put forward by someone

I don't think it has to be competed in professionally in all (or a lot of) countries because the whole thing about the olympics has always been about celebratiing amateur sport, until recently with hockey. You just need a national organization in every country.

Well bridge is being considered for an olympic sport, but I think it would make a lot more sense to make UniHo(ckey)ki a sport

Good man.

If we're going to get UniHoki in the Olympics, we all have to start using the sport's correct name first...

Are there any other governing bodies for UniHoki that are affiliated to the Ice- and InLine hockey structures?
