It gave me a list of about 10 sports, with Synchronized swimming at the top of the list - I dont' think so!

Two things:
Firstly, twoKiwis - I just noticed you're from Dunedin. I have relatives who live there. One of them works at the University, doing medical research.

Secondly,
I took a look at this site and am very disappointed! There were no questions relating to the important things for women:
Cooking
Cleaning
Washing
Ironing
...etc

ME TOO!!! Hey, maybe we should form a team!!!!
post #6 of 23
If we are all suited to 'synchronized sports' maybe we could start up a synchronized ski team.

WTFH - there are only 120,000 people in Dunedin, chances are I've bumped into them on the street. Do they look like a little green leprachuen too?

Well, I haven't seen Mark & Candice in years, so I can't remember what they're like. If I find out, I'll send you a description.

I got modern pentathlon and frisbee.

SS only came sixth. Where did I go wrong?
post #9 of 23
I'm not doubting the legitimacy of that sports selector, and maybe it doesn't work for non-females, but I tried it for a laugh, and here's what I got:

1. Modern Pentathlon
2. Triathlon
3. Yachting
4. Canoeing
5. Sailing
6. Kayak
7. Rowing
8. Synchronized Swimming
9. Swimming
10. Frisbee
11. Fishing
12. Polo

OK, maybe this is a US thing, but frisbee is not a sport in Europe. It's a disk you throw when you're at the beach. Is it a sport in the US with a World Series (that only Americans are allowed in), or are they saying I'm not cut out for major exercise?

In Scotland, the throwing of frisbees is almost always confined to those attempting to exhaust over-energetic hounds with as little exertion as possible.

Better than hunting foxes, of course, but scarcely more challenging.

And neither can be described as a sport.
post #12 of 23
ok so mine went something like :

Triathlon
Yachting
Sync Swimming
Sailing - not sure how they differentiate this from yachting ??
Swimming - I'll give them that one, used to be a swimmer
Rowing
modern pentathalon
canoeing
kayaking
frisbee - as already ptd out this is not a sport
fishing - no thanks

and best of all

Rodeo !! yeeee haaaa cowboy!! what the %$#&!
I think I'll just stick to skiing & mtn biking.
post #13 of 23
I thought you Scots spent your lives tossing your cabers (isn't that what you call them?)
post #14 of 23
Just had an idea:
A lot of you ladies have yachting/sailing on your list. So how about we have a bears gathering.

I'll hire a yacht in the Mediterannean, and you are all welcome to come, spend a week on my boat.

YOu've never heard of Ultimate Frisbee ( a team sport) or Frisbee Golf?

For those of you with ideal sports including running, boxing, fencing, shooting, cycling, modern pentathlon, or swimming; look out for the 2008 Olympics in Ballymun, Ireland.


In an attempt to influence the members of the international Olympic committee on their choice of venue for the games in the year 2008, the organizers of the recently submitted Ballymun's bid have already drawn up an itinerary and schedule of events with intentions of persuading the committee that Ballymun is without doubt a first choice location. A copy has been leaked and is reproduced below:

OPENING CEREMONY
A petrol bomb thrown by a native of the city (preferably from the Tower Block's area), wearing the traditional balaclava will ignite the Olympic flame. The flame will be contained in a large chip van situated on the roof of the stadium.

THE EVENTS
In previous Olympic games, Ballymun's competitors have not been particularly successful. In order to redress the balance, some of the events have been altered slightly to the advantage of local 'Ballymun' athletes.

100 METRES SPRINT
Competitors will have to hold a video recorder and microwave oven (one in each arm) and on the sound of the starting pistol, a police dog will be released from a cage 10 yards behind the athletes.

100 METRES HURDLES
As above but with added obstacles (i.e.. car bonnets, hedges, garden fences, walls etc.)

HAMMER
Competitors in this event may choose the type of hammer they wish to use (claw, sledge etc.) the winner will be the one who can cause the most grievous bodily harm to members of the public within the time allowed.

FENCING
Entrants will be asked to dispose of as much stolen silver and jewelry as possible in 5 mins.

SHOOTING
A strong challenge is expected from the local men in this event. The first target will be a moving police van. In the second round, competitors will aim at a post office clerk, bank teller or Securicor style wages delivery man.

BOXING
Entry to the boxing will be restricted to husband and wife teams, and will take place on a Friday night. The husband will be given 15 pints of lager while the wife will be told not to make him any tea when he gets home. The bout will then commence.

CYCLING TIME TRIALS
Competitors will be asked to break into the local school's bike shed and take an expensive mountain bike owned by some mummy's boy from the south side on his first trip away from home. All against the clock.

CYCLING PURSUIT
As above but the bike will be owned by a visiting member of the Australian rugby team, who will witness the theft.

MODERN PENTATHLON
Amended to include mugging, breaking and entering, flashing, joy riding and arson.

THE MARATHON
A safe route has yet to be decided, but the competitors will be issued with sharp sticks and bags with which to pick up litter on their way round the course.

SWIMMING Competitors will be thrown off the bridge over the ship canal. The first three survivors' back will decide he medals.

MENS 50KM WALK
Unfortunately this will have to be cancelled, as the police cannot guarantee the safety of anyone walking the streets of Ballymun.

THE CLOSING CEREMONY
Entertainment will include formation rave dancing by members of the Coolock Health in the Community anti-drug campaigners, synchronized rock throwing and music by the Darndale's Community Choir. The Olympic flame will be extinguished by someone dropping an old washing machine onto it from the top floor of the block of flats next to the stadium. The stadium will be then boarded up before the local athletes break into it and remove all the copper piping and the central heating boiler.

Waterskiing
Diving
Windsurfing
Surfing
Inline Skating
Weight training
Tai Chi
Weightlifting
Squash
Dog Sledding
Snowboarding
Skiing-Downhill
*******************************

Now how the He## did skiing end up at the bottom? Below SNOWBOARDING no less!!!!!!

Another day on the hill....another attack by a snow boarder.

This guy hucked himself off a ledge onto a very busy run and admitted to me after we came to a stop (he hit me at the back of my knees head first and I sat on his back - I "surfed" him for about 30 feet) that he jumped off not knowing what was below him.

Brilliant.

Yeah, I got snowboarding too. and I have an aversion to looking androdgynous!

I also said I liked land, not water, so I have no idea how all these water activities came up.
post #19 of 23
I think I'll have another go, neither skiing or weight training appeared on the list and they are the two things I do and love most. I just thought they were not in their list but Sugar Snack got them on hers.
post #20 of 23
Dull moment. Waiting for a training course to start, so thought I'd do it again, giving slightly different answers. Guess what? I got the same bizarre suggestions, viz:

Yachting
Swimming
Synchronized Swimming
Sailing
Triathlon
Frisbee
Rowing
Modern Pentathlon
Fishing
Canoeing
Kayak
Dance

What's with all the wet stuff, girls?

I reckon the website's secretly sponsored by a watersports gear manufacturer and a frisbee wholesaler and it's all one massive conspiracy to get us to go shopping!

Sugar Snack

You seem to be the only one to get Skiing. What inputs did you use?

post #23 of 23
TT, you can be a real slacker to alpine ski (according to the survey).

So alpine skiers can be (this is a bit paraphrased ) airheads with no time to train, who are into safety and shortcuts and likes water sports! Also is willing to pay once in a while and go solo.
Cool eh? :
