Skydivers don't usually get much TV coverage unless they die, or have a celebrity doing it with them.(Not sure what's worse!)
So I propose...
The Air Olympics!
Basically it could be seperated into different events:
Race- Athletes would see who could get to the ground first. To emulate
the 1500, 400m events on the ground, athletes could jump from various heights, say 10000ft or 30000ft.
Slalom- Smaller Planes would support rings to fly through with a target to hit on the ground.
Relay- Athletes have to fall to a headstarting team mate and pass on the baton.
Rings- Athletes have to collect the falling hoops. The one with the most at ground level wins.
Style- Points are awarded for the most stylish manouvers.
Javelin (!)- Athletes have to throw the javelin towards one target and land on another. (Discus as well)
Long Jump- The one who gets the furthest away from the start wins.
Chess-(thanks [thundug]!) In this instance 'checkmate' means getting splatted against the floor.
Triathalon-(thanks [yabba doo yabba dabba]!) Incorporates style, race and freefalling all in one!
Any more event ideas will be useful.
Yes i know it's extremely dangerous but so are the winter Olympics (Skeleton!!!)
