    I think, Gymnastics - Artistic. Very few countries participate. It is good one but should be out Olympics due to lack of competition. Out of 42 medals, 6 countries won 35. No other country won even 2 medals. It's easy for China, US and Russia to win 50%-75% medals among themselves. :D

    The number of medals for swimming should also be reduced. It is bent in favour of few countries.

    Also it is unfair on athletes of other sports...11 footballers play multiple 90min games and win 1 medal at the end while swimmer bags a dozen medals in few mins.

    Make medals for swimming like it is in gymnastics where total score is combined for rings, bars, vault etc

    I agree with this. No arena should be allowed to have so many medals compared to others.

    Swimming has in total 34 Medals (minus Marathon) with events like 50m, 100m, 200m and 400m Freestyle :facepalm:
    although Athletics have 47 Medals majority of the events belongs to diverse events and solemnly deserve :nod:
    and Diving have 8 Gold Medals, dont know why it's considered a Sport .. :noidea:
