Paragliding, The Next Olympic Sport?

With the Summer Olympics going on in Rio, there is always talk about what sport the Olympic Committee could add next. In the case of some very high flying daredevils, Paragliders are trying to make a case in Rio that they should be looked at seriously as a sport that needs to be added.

Now I don’t know how Paragliding would be added as a sport. Do you race? Do you do time trials? Do you just see who can float the farthest? I really don’t know, but the video below really makes Paragliding seem like one of the coolest things you could be doing at Rio right now.

Would you take the risk and go Paragliding? If you have gone before, what is it like? Go ahead and let us know!
