There we have it, our first Olympics poll, from our member StephKuran. The given choices are not precisely how the IOC categorizes sports/disciplines, but too bad. We're not part of the IOC, nor do we follow their rules.

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related):
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results
Question: What's better?
Choices:
Reading manga - votes: 6200 (39.5%)
Watching anime - votes: 1505 (9.6%)
Reading a book - votes: 1560 (9.9%)
Watching a movie or TV - votes: 229 (1.5%)
Doing exercise - votes: 514 (3.3%)
Playing video games - votes: 1628 (10.4%)
Eating - votes: 573 (3.7%)
Sleeping - votes: 2187 (13.9%)
Daydreaming - votes: 1044 (6.7%)
Chatting - votes: 255 (1.6%)
There were 15695 total votes.
The poll ended: August 11th 2012

No surprises, given our demographics

Athletics, which is the official designation for it

I voted Soccer (Football), though everyone throwing matches at Badminton was quite entertaining.

I'm surprised so many people voted for gymnastics; I don't even really consider that a sport, let alone something worthy of the olympics.

... and where are the track and field events? Athletics? You put field hockey and handball up there but not the marathon?

And Equestrian... I'm still not really sure what that event is or how it made it into the olympics. roll eyes

Basketball. I'm a fan of the sport. Yea, I'm surprised with the gymnastics as well. I thought soccer would have the most votes, but... Oh well..

Voted Gymnastics, why?

Because most sports are way to boring to watch.

only sports worth considering watching from this list are

Boxing, Equestrian, Fencing, Field Hockey, Gymnastics, Handball, Judo, Soccer, Table tennis, Taekwondo, Tennis, Vollyball, Waterpolo and wrestling

Then the quite boring sports which always look the same get taken out Equestrian, fencing, table tennis, tennis, vollyball

And things that take too long like soccer, handball, field hockey and Waterpolo are taken out.

Boxing, Wrestling, judo, taekwondo and gymnastics are left

Wrestling has made itself look fake.
Judo isn't quite my thing.
Boxing is kinda interesting
Taekwondo is awesome and might have won but there are so many action movies where I can enjoy Taekwando more. (with explosions and stuff)
And gymnastics is just most interesting to look at. Also don't let people forget that gymnastics also has dudes competing.

I could also have chose for the similar dives or water ballet or something, but that wasn't really a choice.

Lol at the perverts comment. It might be true to some degree, but I don't think that's why it's so popular. If people wanted to see girls in minimal clothing, other sports show more skin than gymnastics. Most of the people I know who like watching gymnastics are females who enjoy watching it because it's creative, beautiful, and just straight up amazing. I personally prefer watching men's gymnastics more because of how powerful it looks. And pommel horse is my favorite gymnastics apparatus to watch.
Gymnastics would also include rhythmic gymnastics, which is an extremely cool looking sport. Especially the ribbon portion.

But I voted for Athletics. I love track and field. Mostly track and the jumping side of field (not too interested in the throwing part, but it's cool too).

So true.
Badminton is quite popular in my country, and I played it often. That, the soap opera, and the fact that my there's no live broadcast of Olympics games (except soccer) in my country made me choose badminton. Or maybe they actually broadcast it, but I didn't watch TV that often to know.
