The thrill of the libido and the agony of the panty rash may soon be a new highlight of the Olympics if pole dancers have their way and their acrobatic gyrations become an Olympic event.
Others are hardly convinced, but the founder of the International Pole Dancing Fitness Association believes Olympic recognition is merely a matter of time.
Hong Kong-based Ania Przeplasko, founder of the International Pole Dancing Fitness Association, the sport’s fledgling supervisory body, believes Olympic recognition is only a matter of time and would be a victory for under appreciated sports worldwide.
“There will be a day when the Olympics see pole dancing as a sport,” she said. “The Olympic community needs to acknowledge the number of people doing pole fitness now. We’re shooting for 2016.”
Besides, pole dancing has the “wow factor,” one practitioner told reporters.
“I could definitely see pole dancing in the Olympics,” said Sato, who out-twirled a bevy of athletes from 11 countries at the second International Pole Dancing Fitness Championships in Tokyo two months ago. “I would love to win a gold medal.”Tags: hot pics, olympic skier, olympics, pole dancing, pole dancing in olympics
