If 29-year-old world pole dancing champion Mai Sato gets her wish, her sport will finally get the non-sweaty attention it deserves. Along with many other dancers, Sato would like to see pole dancing become an Olympic event
. Ania Przeplasko, the founder of the International Pole Dancing Fitness Association, thinks it's only a matter of time before you'll be able to watch pole tricks from the comfort of your living room. She says, "There will be a day when the Olympics see pole dancing as a sport. The Olympic community needs to acknowledge the number of people doing pole fitness now. We're shooting for 2012."
