Is cheerleading in the Olympics?

No, as of the 2008 Summer Olympics, cheerleading is not an Olympic event but it is in the running to be one.

nopee....unfortuately not!! but it should be because it is right up there with gymnastics in the competitive and body building sports.

There are rumors going around The Feirce Boards that it will be an exhibition in 2012 and then it will be decided wehter it will be an official olympic sport or not.

There are also some rumors I have heard through friends that pronound cheerleaders Hope Bravo, Meredith Fram, and Kiara Nowlin have their eye on being a part of that team.

Should wrestling should be banned or not?

No because it gives entertainment to the world. If it should be banned then why would it be in the Olympics? The TV shows are not real and the actual sport has so much health and safety involved in it these days there is almost no painful moves involved. If it was banned then a big percentage of almost every country would be unimpressed and some may even riot against the idea.

Are there banned wrestling moves?

Don't think so. The WWE have asked that some moves not be done very often due do superstars being injured. Overhead suplexes and piledrivers are 2 examples.

Actually,Piledrivers are banned, as are over head suplexes (German). For some reason, they let Taker perform his tombstone still,but I think maybe its because its his signature.

and also the shooting star press is saposed to be banned but they let Evan bourn do it because he keeps getting it right all the time and the vertabreaker is banned to

Who was the heaviest boxing champ?

for a long time the biggest and heaviest heavyweight champion of the world was primo carnera. during the mid to late 90's though a new breed of heavyweight came through and regularly weighed in alot heavier - like riddick bowe, jorge luise gonzalez and lennox Lewis. i believe now though that the enormous nikolai valuev is both the tallest and heaviest ever world heavyweight champion. the first Russian to win the title - he stands over 7ft tall and weighs about 330lbs. he lost his title and unbeaten record earlier this year.

Why are 2 bronze medals awarded in Olympic Boxing?

In boxing, if one of the semi-final losers is knocked out, he can't box

again for a certain time period as a safety precaution, and it

wouldn't be fair to take away his chance at a bronzemedal just

because his semi-final opponent was so much better than the others,in all other

cases the losing semifinalists both get a bronze in Olympics and other games because ,

there are no qualifying events before the main events .

If an 18-year-old boxer has been training for a few years but has not had a fight yet do they have a chance to make the 2012 Olympics?

I believe he has a chance, but he will need to start sparring and training on a daily basis. You have 3 years to have him spar with different opponents and you might want to sign him up for the golden gloves, this way he can get experience on what to expect when he try's out for the Olympics. I also have a 7 year old who I'm training my self and hope one day for him to be successfully on this sport. Its not hard it just takes a lot of dedication and the willing to train hard. i hope i answer you question. thanks and good luck. ummm...if you have been training for a few years and have not had one fight, something is wrong...my gym goes to fights once a week atleast when you are trained with basic knowledge...my answer would be no unless u get a better trainer...( but my answer is good as any other clown on here ya know good luck with it man.)
