Hide-And-Seek Might Become An Olympic Sport And These Kids Will Definitely Make The Team

Posted: Updated:

Your toddlers might one day be in the Olympics playing a game they've already perfected. A Japanese professor is lobbying to make hide-and-seek an official Olympic sport in 2020. The Telegraph reports that Professor Yasuo Hazaki started the Japan Hide-and-Seek Promotion Committee in 2010 and the organization now has around 1,000 members.

"I want to encourage sport for all, meaning that anyone can take part, regardless of age, gender or ability," he told the Telegraph. "Hide-and-seek is a sport that anybody can play, from children as young as 4 years old to someone who is in their 80s."
