Pole dancing may soon become an Olympic sport!
The International Pole Sports Federation (IPSF) has been granted “observer status” by the Global Association of International Sports Federation (GAISF) which officially recognizes activities as a sport. This means the pole sports federation can apply for the Olympics.
“There are several reasons why pole, as a sport would be qualified as an Olympic sport. It requires strength, timing, coordination, flexibility and an extreme amount of dedication for it to be safe and to excel in the sport,” Wendy Traskos, the owner of NY Pole Dancing studio, told the Daily News.
