As “cool” sports such as surfing, skateboarding and climbing prepare to make their Olympic debut in Tokyo, the president of surfing’s governing body has told Reuters that more traditional sports must adapt or face being dropped from the Games. […]
“The old sports need to adapt,” said Aguerre.
“(IOC) President (Thomas) Bach is very clear about that from the first speech he made when he accepted his election he said ‘change or be changed’.”
“The evolution of the species is one of those that change… or the ones that didn’t change that are nowhere to be found.”
