That takes more $$$ than skill usually.

Yes, playing ping-pong or shooting a pistol or a bow and arrow are easy to do. The question is how many people can become Olympic caliber at it. The OP should move to a country with a very tiny population and then begin training at something.

This. So if OP is ridiculously rich, he might have a chance.

Judo.

I spent 20 minutes watching this f*cking sport, I still don't know how anyone scores a point. Basically just hold onto your opponents robe and you're fine. You might even escape with a win.

How hard is sailing?


Also didn't Geena Davis pick up archery pretty quickly and almost make the Olympics?

Judo is awesome. I took a judo class in college. It's just the same thing as real wrestling with slightly different rules, and different core moves.


But my vote for easiest olympic sport is curling. Its ice bocce ball. You can practically play it while holding a drink in your hand.

Yes, because she probably has hand-eye coordination and muscle memory that's in the top .01 percent of the population.

So is the question, how easy is to learn? Or how easy is it to be Olympic caliber? Because bobsled is actually much harder to learn than the 100 m dash which is just straight running. This is running and jumping into a sled.

Don't forget they have to glide the sled though the pipe at very high speed also. Things can go wrong easily in there.

Of course, if you went up against an Olympian that strategy would find you flipped on your ass several times.

It's fairly straightforward. Throwing your opponent on their back or submitting your opponent on their back is an instant win (ippon). You perform either of these actions to a lesser extent you can score a wasari (essentially a half ippon), or a yuko (the smallest score).

If no one wins the game within the time limit they look at points scored. If a tie they continue to fight sudden death to first point scored. If still a draw judges decide.

That's the basic gist of it.
