    Jet ski racing could be part of the proposed new ‘world beach games’ in 2017
    Nov201407
    While bowling tries to get into the Olympics with a crazy new scoring method, jet ski racing is looking to find a new home in a beach-based pretend-Olympics that could come as soon as 2017. The unnamed games won’t get the official Olympic label, although they would reportedly be partly run by the Association of National Olympic Committees, an organization composed of more than 200 member states recognized by the International Olympic Committee, Reuters reports.

    “We are very keen about the beach games,” ANOC president Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah said at a news conference (via Reuters). “This will be the first event for us. We will put it to the general assembly to approve the beach games.” The proposal will be discussed this week when the group meets for a general assembly meeting in Bangkok.

     

     

    The beach games would include flag football, skateboarding and, perhaps most exciting, jet-ski racing, a sport seemingly pulled directly from the dreams of Kenny Powers, especially if it involves a freestyle jet skiing competition, which yes, is a thing worth watching.
