Default What is the easiest Olympic sport?

So i've been good in sports all my life man. Varsity bball, varsity volleyball I learned in 1 year and became the starter and number one spiker in my team. I do all kind of sports for fun: badminton, bowling, pool, running, swimming. Basically I'm good.

So I've decided I wanted a Olympic Gold Medal to put in my room. What's the easiest sports to accomplish this? I just want to train for maybe 2 months then enter the olympic competition in 2016.

Table Tennis is probably the least physically demanding of all the events. Almost anyone can do it and it doesn't take years of training.

Not saying it's EASY by everyday standards, but i think the easiest out of the Olympic sports would probably be fencing

Fencing, archery, or equestrian dressage.

You need a lifetime to master the crazy amount of technique that is behind fencing. If OP means easiest as in easiest to pick up, then fencing is definitely out of the question.
