London 2012 Olympics

Hmmmm, the London 2012 Olympics are getting perilously close and as yet we’ve still to see paintball added to the list of sports. Maybe it’s wishful thinking on my our part, and maybe it’s just a bitter determination to do everything we can to spread the good paintball word and get the sport all the recognition it deserves, but either way – it’d be nice to see paintball go proper global.

As a sport, there are many different elements, tactics, skills and approaches that each style of paintball uses and, we think anyway, that this would make it a superb addition to the big O-Games, but unfortunately it’s not up to us!

It seems it’s not only us who are debating this hot topic, and there’s even a Facebook group dedicated to the cause (go join it, cough cough).

What are your thoughts? Is paintball ready to cut the mustard next to the big guns? Think there’s any chance we could see our beloved pastime take London by storm in summer 2012?
