TM243. If you could be in the Olympics, what event/sport would you want to do most?

I would definitely want to be in the summer Olympics and do the swimming events. Those guys get to go for an outrageous number of medals during one Olympics. Look at that Phelps kid. He's going to break the record for most career medals because he gets to compete in eight events this year! Eight! Then you look at some poor guy who trains his entire life for something like the decathlon and he only gets to compete for one medal. No other chances for him to medal, never mind breaking any records. Yeah, I think swimmers have it the easiest when it comes to getting chances to win multiple medals for about five minutes of effort. And I would want multiple medals not because I'm greedy, but because I'd like to have a few extra to give to loved ones.

If I went with events for sports I love, though, they would have to be tennis and running. I'm not as good as I used to be at tennis, but how cool would it be to get a gold medal for it? The running would be good, but it would have to be a distance event. I don't sprint and I don't hurdle. Here's where I insert a comment about there being only one thing I like to jump on a regular basis.
