High level sports competitions like the Olympics are not easy, yet many Americans think they can handle it. A One Poll survey delves into what Americans think of the games. Somehow 40-percent asked say they have what it takes and are fit enough to compete. Half that number comes from the Northeast and 70-percent are under 35.
The good news is, even though 44-percent say the games are overrated, 80-percent admitted to following the coverage. Out of all the new sports, two-thirds were happy to see baseball and softball return to the Olympics. About 42-percent want MMA to be added next, followed by lacrosse and bowling.
The cloud of COVID provided the only negative comments, with 55-percent saying the 2020 games should have been canceled.
