This 52m Long Trampoline Needs To Be An Olympic Event

Why is the International Olympic Committee wasting its time on introducing new events like Kitesurfing at the 2016 games in Rio when any sport played on this 52m long trampoline would be far more entertaining to watch?

Created by Salto, a Russian architecture firm, the Archstoyanie art festival installation looks like just about as much fun as anyone can have on two feet — until you sprain your ankle. And it doesn't have to only be limited to use at the Olympics. If airports replaced those moving sidewalks with an extensive network of long trampolines, flying would be far more enjoyable too.

    True, and even funnier to watch all the tubbies trying to get anywhere without the motorised assistance of the travelators.
    But crap for all the poor folk in wheelchairs.
    We can has both maybe?

      bouncy travelators?

        fat-o-paults.

          I just ticked the plus one up arrow on your comment but it doesn't show anywhere so what's the point in it? Anyway +1

    tis a sport already, Tumbling, falls under the trampolining category as a Gymnastics sport. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tumbling_(gymnastics)

    Unlike Rhythmic and Artistic Gymnastics, trampolining only gets one of their 4 disciplines in the Olympics.
