- The International Pole Sports Federation (IPSF) wants to get into the list of Olympic sports and debut at the Tokyo Olympic games in 2020.
- Pole dancing can be considered sexy because it has close connection and popularity in night clubs but it is not only that.
- Pole dancing is also a sport as every woman doing it professionally has to be strong, flexible and basically possess skills of a gymnast.
In the interviews, many pole dancers underlined that everyone in this sport has to maintain discipline as any other sportsmen. Discipline in health diet and attitude towards practice.IPSF has already applied to the International Olympic Committee asking to recognize their sport as Olympic and we have to wait how it goes.Hopefully, next time, in Tokyo, people will already be able to follow the most attractive and interesting competition in the Olympic program.
Supporters of the idea as well as the IPSF itself want to succeed as they only see pole dancing as a sport with no matter where society want to place it. It is all about muscles and strength, not about sex.IPSF even promises to not put any defiant closes on its sportsmen. It all will be appropriate and nothing outrageous.
Federation clearly understands that there will be a line drawn between pole dancing as a matter of sexual attraction and sport activity for the promotion of healthy lifestyle.The only hope is that it won't be sexualised and considered inappropriate for such important international event as the Olympic games.
