Pole dancing could become an Olympic event, according to the Associated Press! Yes, you
didn’t just read a typo. A group of seasoned strippers (or is that exotic athletes), are hoping for their chance with a “test” event in 2012, and a more formal entry 4 years after that in Rio de Janeiro!

According to one of the girls intereviewed in the article, strippers competing on an Olympic level won’t be so outlandish anymore, especially when considering the dexterity necessary to be a skilled “pole dancer.”  Said stripper and Olympic pole dancing hopeful, Wendy Traskos, “Now, when you talk about it you don’t hear ‘like a stripper’ anymore…You hear things like, ‘Oh, my friend takes classes for fitnees’ or ‘Yes, I’ve seen it on ‘Oprah.’ “
