What's Your Favourite Summer Olympic Sport?

With so much Olympic controversy this year with pandemic concerns I wonder if watching the games on TV this summer will be as popular as most Olympics?  The best part about Summer Olympics is they occur when most major league sports are a little quiet. No NFL, MLB pennant races haven't really heated up yet, and Basketball and Hockey are on their summer breaks.

The Summer Olympics gives us 2 weeks of sports that we largely never watch, except for 17 days every 4 years. And even though most events will be tape delayed, it will hopefully give us some excitement.

Here are the top 10 ranked Summer Olympic sports to watch:

 #10   Handball

Olympic handball is fun to watch even if you don't know all of the rules.


#9   Wrestling, Taekwondo and Judo  

Combat sports such as judo belong in the Olympics.

#8   Table Tennis

Do not confuse pingpong for table tennis.

#7   Team Volleyball

The United States and the Netherlands produced a classic volleyball match at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

#6   Men's Basketball

Some of the best basketball players in the world still compete at the Olympics.

#5   Water Polo

Water polo players can be downright mean during matches.

#4   Women's Soccer

The United States women's national team is expected to win gold at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

#3   Swimming

Michael Phelps is a superstar in and out of the pool.

#2 Track

Usain Bolt is one of the biggest Olympic superstars of the past decade.

#1 Gymnastics

Gymnastics often provide high drama during an Olympics.
