Why Isn't Dog Sledding a Winter Olympic Sport?


After seeing all the beauty of Canada and watching the fascinating winter sports competitions, and even their great little segment on sled dogs, I do have to wonder why dog sledding is not an Olympic sport? Naturally, the typical courses are too long, but sprint-style would be perfect. There is no other beauty in my mind than watching these beautiful, awesome, and strong dogs happy in their element doing what's in the blood, all set against the winter beauty of places such as Canada, Alaska, etc. There has not been a dog sledding event competition in the Olympics since 1932 in Lake Placid. I think it may be high time that's reconsidered! Here's an interesting clip:
