So, while Louisville is too late to get into the bidding pool as the destination for the next two winter Olympic Games—2026 is still wide open. In the meantime, here are some sports at which Louisvillians would truly excel.

Pothole Slaloms

Get in car. Drive the expanse of I-64. Navigate innumerable potholes without tapping other drivers.

Spotter (shotgun passenger) optional.

Pairs Griping

Greet partner at the water-cooler with a sigh. Proceed to complain about the freezing temperatures.

Technical points awarded for length of the grumbling session, use of appropriate frustrated gestures and nonverbals, and inclusion of the phrase, “Well, you won’t hear me complaining about a scorching summer this year.”

Bourbon Biathlon

Take a shot of bourbon. Take another.

Snowmageddon Grocery Dash

Receive text notification of impending winter weather. Rush to the grocery store. Points awarded for number of milk gallons and bread loaves obtained. Timed portion begins once you hit the check-out line.

Roundabout Road Curling

Enter the Cherokee Triangle Roundabout. Take the first right without skidding on ice.

Synchronized Jaywalking

This sport is dominated by teenaged athletes who frequently train in the Bardstown Road area.

Simply ignore the crosswalk located a mere block away. Grab the hands of your teammates and run squealing into oncoming traffic. Hopefully reach the other side

Team uniform: Unseasonably short skirts and/or Hot Topic hoodies.

NuLu Stiletto Skating

Make plans in NuLu. Wear your highest heels despite the skinny sidewalks covered in snow.
