It never ceases to annoy me, every two years when the Olympics roll around, how some bullshit sports like Ice Dancing (basically, ballroom dancing on skates) are worth the same medals as something clearly more difficult, such as Freestyle Snowboarding. (Switch to warmer weather, switch the terms to, say, Synchronized Swimming and the Decathlon, and you get the exact same rant.) Some of these sports need to start off at the bronze medal as the highest prize you can get, with lower-place medals made of something like copper, stainless steel, or aluminum.
