They say there is a possibility that jousting could become part of the Olympics as soon as 2020…Some have petitioned that the long ago sport and tournament of Kings should take a rightful place in the games.
Could You wear 20 lbs of armor, sit astride a saddle of such a powerful animal and hit an opponent at 30 miles an hour with a lance? Could you stay upon your horse in such conditions? Could you walk away from such a fall if you were knocked off your horse? Could you wield a sword after such an act?
What do you think of Jousting? Is is still a sport?
