Biking is very technology oriented too, infact all sports are in the olympics especially if you look at the training too. I would hope that that wouldnt hold paintball from the olympics. Alot weirder sports have been in the olympics such as hunting.

I personally consider paintball an extreme sport when you have up to 30 balls flying at you at speeds of up to 300 feet perseond I don't see how it couldnt be considered an extreme sport.

I am gonna need proof on that. 3rd Largest sport doesn't sound right. Maybe extreme sport. I bet tons more play baseball, but i don't have the statistics, so I'll have to look it up.


paintball isnt the 3rd largest sport, its the 3rd largest EXTREME sport... right behind Inline skating and skateboarding

Paintball is considered an extreme sport because there is risk of serious injury.

i totaly agree, paintball is one of the most growing
extreme sports out there and is definetly better than
watching target pratice on the summer olympics. I
wuz watchin tha xgames and wonderin why it didnt
have paintball in it, i mean paintballs coming at you
at 300 feet per second isnt xtreme than i dont know
what is.

anyone wanna ___ signal his name^
anyway, I doubt paintball will make it to the olympics just yet but the X-Games eventually for sure, I mean, people wanted scooters in the X-Games so give paintball a chance

I dislike mimes, does it show?

I think it would be cool to have paintball in the x games. i wouldnt mind playing for a team for that either
Paintball is the best sport no matter what anyone says, and if you cheat you get beat. Snipers rule!

I agree, it would be awsome to see paintball in the X-games
