Bikram’s Yoga Asana Championships are really picking up steam – we may even see it (competitive yoga) in the Olympics! Of course, lotsa yogadorks are wondering if this is a serious push and just how close they are to persuading the International Olympic Committee to come to the sweaty side. Answer? We don’t know! However, we do know the Bikram camp isn’t the only unsuspecting group with gold medals in their eyes. We found some other Olympic hopefuls rallying to get their “sport” into the Games. Ladies and gents, the USA Pole Dancing Team!
KT Coates, a prominent pole dancer in England and director of Vertical Dance, is leading the Olympic push.
“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, and what better way for recognition than to be part of the 2012 Olympics held in London,” she said in a petition she’s preparing for organizers of the London Olympics.
Asana and pole dancing, maybe they should join forces! Good luck to all the able-bodied half-nekkid acrobatic physical maneuverists in their pursuit of the Olympic dream.
