My opinion on this topic is that why shouldn't there be synchronised skating in the Winter Olympics when there is synchronised swimming in the Summer Olympics. There's normal swimming events and the synchronised so why not have the same thing for ice skating?
Because what the synchro community is militantly demanding is that the IOC add at least 120 extra athletes to the Olympic Games - MORE THAN THE OTHER FOUR DISCIPLINES COMBINED - at a time when the IOC is trying to reduce the size of the Olympics, or at least not expand it any further. Once again: which sport are you proposing gets kicked out of the Olympics to make room for synchro?
