Extreme Toy Jeep Racing

As you probably know, the International Olympic Committee has come up with a short list of sports to be considered for the 2020 Olympics.

Wrestling, squash, and baseball/softball are the final three sports vying for a single spot in the summer games.

But we think the IOC has made a glaring oversight, and the proof is in the video at the top.

We'd like to make the case for Extreme Barbie Jeep Racing to be thrown in the mix. It's an annual event held in Delta, Alabama.

The IOC says it wants entertainment; well here it is. Busted Knuckle Films, who made the event's official video, calls it 'The most fun you can have on 15 pounds of plastic'.
