Pole Dancers Set Sights on Olympics

Once relegated to bourbon-soaked bars filled with leery-eyed men, the world of pole dancing has emerged from seedy back alleys into a legitimate sport.

So much so that, according to WA pole dancing luminaries, the sport's best could be competing at the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympics.

A few Australian pole dancers, including WA's Tammy Baxter, are travelling to London in July to perform their five-minute routines in front of Olympic committee members at the world pole sport championships.

For many, the thought of pole dancing as a sport - let alone an Olympic sport - is questionable.

But Pole Fever Malaga owner Sabrina Walker says there is a simple remedy to this. "Just try it," she said. "My husband can't even lift himself up."

Ms Walker has been involved in the sport for more than 20 years.

She said "pole" as an Olympic sport was not as far-fetched as many might think because the sport was basically "gymnastics . . . with a pole". "The competitors will do a five-minute routine, including spins and different manoeuvres," she said.

"It takes a lot of strength and flexibility."

Ms Walker said business at the Malaga studio was booming.

WA competitive pole dancer Tammy Baxter said she had her fingers crossed that she could one day take "the gold in pole" for Australia at the Olympics.


There's a vid in the link.

I have seen a competition on the box about this and they looked pretty damn good looked like it took a lot of skill, like it said in the above article it's just gymnastics.

rofl

I do competitive stunt cheerleading in a team and if this shit gets to go to the olympics, cheerleading sure as hell should. Pole dancing is great exercise but its a showcase thing and not something that mainstream audiences will take too except for the vast majority of men.

even then, you've seen 10 good pole dancers, you've seen them all and tbh, the men will just get bored with not seeing them nude.

Oh Blewy, you know they're going to wear some kind of leotard thingy, you're not going to be seeing any pink at the Olympic Games.
