X Pole Sport
I was just thinking about the fizzled out campaign to get x-pole dancing into the Olympics as an exhibition event – I think the short burst of publicity was driven by the likes of Dancing Poles and their strive for the mainstream.
I actually took the time to youtube a few of the ‘World Champion’ poledancers of the sport – they are not that good really….
And if you compare it to some of the rythmic gymnastics that should be effectively the equivalents then they fall well short of the bar.
So would the level of the dancing improve with all of the money that would accompany it into the Olympic family or would a few second rate gymnasts change disciplines in order to clean the floor with the vertical dancers? One company www.polesport.co.uk has even given their store a name to reflect the fact that it is sport and not an erotic tease!
The other comparison that has been made is with beach volleyball – I assume the connection is more to do with the fact that sponsors can plaster their logos in tele-friendly than anything to do with any net/pole/beach/stripping connections.
The addition of X Pole Sport would obviously open the way for more semi-talented events that present the opportunity for sposored lingerie.
- Undressing for bed
- Trying on clothes
The fact that it hasn’t made the grade as an exhibition event has prompted suggestions that Pole Dance can join forces with other ‘underground’ sports to form an alternative olympics. The main event of which would be the Thai Style Pat Pong ping-pong.
What's on your mind?
