2020 Summer Games to be Held in New Jersey, GTL Replaces Triathlon

The games of the XXXII Summer Olympiad will be held in New Jersey, American Olympic officials confirmed early Sunday morning.  The word out of Colorado Springs is that the triathlon, an Olympic event since the 2000 games in Sydney, Australia, will be replaced with what is being called the GTL-athlon.  In brief, participants must hit the gym, work a decent tan, and wash/dry at least three loads of laundry before crossing the finish line. 

“This is an outrage,” German Olympic Sports Confederation President Thomas Bach stated after receiving the news.  “This event is obviously geared to favor the host nation, as well as our Italian friends to the South…we will most certainly protest the decision.”

There appears to be little any individual country can do to reverse the decision however, and the Germans in particular have little ground to stand on considering their own attempt to have Polka Dancing added to the list of events for the 1972 Summer Games in Munich.
