Re: Is it possible for Crossfit to make it to Rio in 2016?

No, for a multitude of reasons. Off the top of my head....

1. They've already decided the trial sports for 2016.
2. There's no international governing body on par with FIBA or FIFA, and no internationally-recognized officials or rules. Rules and judging standards change at every competitions, it seems like.
3. There's no year-round drug testing on par with WADA or IOC standards.
4. Random, revealed-at-the-last-minute workouts don't match up with how ANY other Olympic sport is conducted.

I'm sure there are more, but that's enough for now.
