Pole Dancing Aims for London Olympics Recognition

L01b POLE-DANCERS hope to get their event recognised as a sport in time to appear at the 2012 London Olympics.

"After a great deal of feedback from the pole-dance community, many of us have decided that it’s about time pole fitness is recognized as a competitive sport," said leading British pole dancer KT Coates, whose Vertical Dance organisation is running a petition on the issue.

  1. Sorry… I had to laugh. And I hate to rain on the pole dancers’ parade but there is no way it will get into the Olympics by 2012. I won’t deny the athleticism required for this, but it takes a long time for sports to be accepted and put into the olympics. There is a big long list of sports that want to be olympic sports. Apparently Sport Climbing was accepted as a sport in 2007, but I don’t think it has even been a demonstration sport yet. It can take years before sports go through the whole process.

    I’m excited that Rugby will finally be included in the 2016 olympics although I think would have been pretty fitting if the first time would have been in London.

    • haha, I know, the chances are slim for London 2012 but kudos for trying, I can see it being possible to compete in and maybe in 20 years time who knows but for London no way…
