About six years ago a professor in Japan had an idea for a new Olympic sport.
His plan: get the Olympics to add a sport where “anyone can take part, regardless of age, gender, or ability.”
That’s why he founded the Japan Hide-and-Seek Promotion Committee.
The committee even created rules for formal competition. At the time he admitted it “may be difficult to get hide-and-seek into the Olympics … but I see Tokyo 2020 as our big chance.”
