You do know you don’t have to watch it don’t you? 🤣I found the solo karate simply the best bit of entertainment of the whole thing, and loved how it got ribbed by the commentators/pundits too for fighting imaginary friends….

More awkward was the modern pentathlon. Now that brought out some nasty examples of how not to ride horses, or behave when working with animals who quite frankly had no say in whether they wanted to be there on not (the latter clearly visible with many). The german coach, shameful behaviour when they punched the horse on its way back after it refused to perform. Abhorrent.

The modern rules say that you cannot hit your opponent but simply touch, that too with consent under the watchful eyes of the referee. Its a new form of art and 'martial' has nothing to do with it these days.

Unless you’re interested in those sports they are poor spectator sports. Judo and wrestling are super technical and one fall ends it similar to a ko punch in boxing so it’s very cagey. TKD is just crap period that should be banned.
