We all know the traditional Olympic sports—figure skating, gymnastics, track and field and so forth. Then, there are the more peculiar Olympic events that, despite their curious nature, are still part of the every-four-years discussion. (Curling, we're looking at you.) The Olympic conversation doesn't end there, though. Since the start of the games, demonstration sports have been held. Sometimes, they represent the host nation's tradition (bandy), while others appear as demonstrations on their way to adoption as official sports (basketball, volleyball). Here, collected from the annals of the Olympics, are 10 of the strangest demonstration events of the last century or so.
