Campaign to make pole dancing olympic sport

275x250.jpgA campaign has been launched to make pole dancing an olympic sport in time for the London 2012 games.

Pole dance instructor KT Coates thinks the discipline should be on a par with rhythmic gymnastics and figure skating.

As such, the 32-year-old has started an online petition for people who want to see pole dancing - or 'vertical pole' - recognized as a competitive sport.

More than 2,500 people have already signed up, and KT hopes her initiative will help remove the stigma attached to pole dance.

But if pole dancing does make it as an olympic sport, what do you think the gold medalist will do on top of the winners podium?
200x190.jpgSpeaking about the petition KT said: "Many of us have decided that its about time pole fitness is recognised as a competitive sport and what better way for recognition, then to be part of the 2012 Olympics.

"We believe that like Rhythmic Gymnastic, the Horizontal Bar and Figure Skating, Pole Dance is acrobatic, gymnastic, technical and takes a great deal of physical skill and strength to master, earning it a place in the greatest sporting event in the world."
