1. Roller Derby

There are a lot of boring, unwatchable Olympic sports out there but this full contact, badass battle on skates ain’t one them.

2. Motorsport

Fast and the Not so Furious 1: women in the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series
Truth be told, women can drive fast too. Especially the women in this two part Fast and the Not So Furious series.

Athletes can challenge each other on horseback for an Olympic medal, so there’s no good reason for excluding auto racing.

3. Netball

After a twenty-year battle, Netball was finally recognised as an Olympic sport in 1995, so why are we STILL waiting?

7 indisputable facts that prove netball is the greatest sport ever
More than 1.2 million Australians play netball, with local clubs and dominating elite teams making it a go-to for women in sport. But what makes it so great? Here are 7 awesome reasons (and they only just scratch the surface)!

4. Skateboarding

Pro skateboarding is a thing of beauty and it attracts legions of fans and sponsors that would bring a new audience to the Olympics.

This woman is challenging the stereotypes of extreme sport
An organisation that promotes positive images of women in action sports is changing the way the industry thinks about gender.

5. Cricket

Cricket made an appearance in 1900 at the Paris Olympics but it was poorly received and cut. 116 years later this awesomely popular sport should get another chance. 

6. Lawn Bowls

Age and gender are no barrier to the lawn bowls success, plus it’s played in the sunshine and often with a cheeky beer. Why you no love, Olympics?

7. Squash

Squash fields some of the fittest, fastest and most skilled athletes in the world, yet the sport keeps getting snubbed by the IOC.
