Since Friday, the Tokyo Olympics 2020 have been in full swing, highlighting events such as basketball, swimming, gymnastics, and much more.

But are there tasks done daily that feel like you’ve been training for months to compete in the Olympics?

On Saturday, ESPN took to Twitter to post this question to its 37.2 million followers: “Name something that 𝙞𝙨𝙣’𝙩 an Olympic sport, but 𝙛𝙚𝙚𝙡𝙨 like an Olympic sport.”

People didn't hesitate to divulge their opinions on it. And some of them were quite creative.

“Seeing how many grocery bags I can carry from the car in one trip,” someone wrote.

“Trying to figure out which Olympic sport is live and which is taped and which is [a] network and which is streaming,” another added.

A third referenced musicians and recognize their work immediately and said this: “Being able to recognize any Taylor Swift song in under 5 seconds.”

Political strategist Atima Omara compared the fight to ending voter suppression to Olympic sports and wrote: “Out organizing voter suppression. Good morning.”

On the other hand, someone else thought that the better question to ask people was “name something that is an Olympic sport that definitely should not be.”

Some of the responses pointed to the belief that golf and curling were some of the main sports that didn’t “make sense” to have in the tournament.
