Let the Games begin!

Had some fun looking up some of the demonstration sports from past Olympics - can you imagine gliding, skijoring (skiing behind a horse), ski ballet and military patrol ever making it into the regular games?!!!

Here are some others plus links to our trips where you may be able to actually watch them in action....

Budo - a martial art still practised in Japan.  Try Land of the Rising Sun

Glima - a form of folk wrestling from Iceland.  Try The Wilds of Iceland

Finnish Baseball - yup, from Finland.  Try Baltic Experience

Ballooning - up, up and away in many countries but most notably in Tanzania.  Try it on Serengeti Trail
