There is nothing I would have a chance at. They don't have a category for letting cats sit on you.

Speed skating because I did that during grade and high school.

Alpine skiing...the Downhill. Requires skill and more courage than any other Olympic event. I'm a skier, but it's hard to imagine skiing at that level.

Fencing I think. I'd have to learn it first. That or Archery. I'm too clumsy for ice skating

I'd like to try my hand at archery, although I would have to learn it first.

East Coast! I have surfed in some really neat spots though- like Sylt Island off the Northern coast of Germany. I've been to Hawaii a few times & South France. I've been to CA (Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay & Dana Point) , & ya, West Coast surfers are awesome!! I was kind of intimidated😳

Sweet!! Ya, I surf off RI, Long Island, & occasionally NJ & NH during the summer. I've been to SC, GA, & FL, & they're all consistent (wave action) whereas up north, where I am, the weather & waves are all over the place. Pipeline? Hahaha! Ummmm... Well, I intended too & was in the water but I sort of just watched lol! I'm not that great!! I'm not bad either but I still get nervous when there's a lot of people in the water.

I'd have to join Dara Torres on the middle age swim team. I've been racing the 100 IM, 400 free, and 100 fly since I turned 40.

I know I'll be the only one choosing this one. In college we had a club Team Handball team, which I played on. It's a really fun sport, popular in Europe. Think water polo without the water, played on a basketball court. If not that, I'd play baseball, if they'd reinstate it into the Games.

That's awesome! I didn't think it would be reinstated because of the World Baseball Classic.

Lol, Kay, we might be the only two in SOH who've seen the sport.
