Diving, gymnastics, dressage, synchronised swimming - all gone. Their scoring systems are entirely subjective so aren't even real sports.
Walking - gone. Just feck off, yeah? As Johnners said all the skinny wankers break into a trot when they think no-one's watching anyway, so there's literally no point.
Football - would actually keep as is. In most countries the distinction between amatuer and professional no longer exists, so would be impossible to administer in practical terms. It's all a bit ****, frankly, but (apparently) gets the best viewing figures, so it stays.
T20 & Rugby 7s - come on down. A shot in the arm for both parent sports for gospel-spreading purposes and the smaller countries would be better able to compete in the abbreviated formats, so won't be quite as many arseholings.
