Default RC Olympics

It would be cool to see each nation represented in the summer olympics. If you looked at the list of events you would wonder why RC was not covered.

Synchronized swimming?
Fencing?
Hand ball?

RC takes just as much skill of not more to compete...I only see one major issue. There is not much altheticism required to be fast in this sport/hobby.

RC Olympics would be sweet!

And then you'd have to open it up to such events as Competitive Typing or a Couch Potato event since you've eliminated the whole idea of physical exertion from the equation.

Not to mention activities that really DO take strength, speed & extreme skill, like competitive Drum Corps(but at least they already have their own World Championships, which coincidentally are going on right now), but they'll likely never get the attention they deserve, so you can bet RC will fare no better....
