12 Little Known Olympic Sports

The 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris featured cannon shooting as a demonstration sport. Really! It was only a demonstration sport and was sadly not repeated in future Olympiads. The 1900 Olympics also featured fishing, ballooning, kite flying and pigeon racing.

I never watch the Olympics, but I might start if they include cannon shooting. If it becomes a popular sport, then high schools and colleges across America might form cannon teams in order to train future competitors and win Olympic glory.

This is 1 of 12 odd sports that were once Olympic events. You can read the rest at Oobject.
