Competitive What?

I was out of town when NPR aired this story, so I'm a bit late here, but can there actually be a league of competitive yoga? That's hoping to become an Olympic sport in 2012? Apparently there is.

My goodness, what are the events? Is there a competition for being the best at renouncing competition? A prize for not caring about prizes?

I guess once synchronized swimming got in, there was no stopping the silliness. Rhythmic gymnastics, moguls skiing, and half pipe weren't far behind. Even bridge was a demonstration sport at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics.

But at least these "sports" aren't inherently oxymoronic.
