Shouldn't be too hard to get something; these days most games are called sport - darts, football, snooker, golf to name but four. You could probably get away with Monopoly ;)

Struggling=wrestling=sport.

For me, the Olympics should be about individual performance in 'high energy' sports, like athletics or swimming.
I have problems with additions like football and beach volleyball. (Sorry, I am rather conservative!)
Now that golf is going to join in the next Olympic Games, I want to break a lance (or should that be rod?) for angling.

So I am in with this for the Sport competition:

So I dug out the bow I haven't shot for more than two years. This was the best grouping I could get. Shooting at just over half the Olympic distance, 40 metres as opposed to 70 metres.

My excuses are I have a £50 bow, the wrong size arrows (all damaged), a sight made out something only marginally more substantial than aluminium foil, a poorly adjusted arrow button, no clicker, and, most important, I'm rubbish.

Hey, that's not rubbish. When I was shooting (.22 and 303) we were aleways taught that close grouping was more important than hitting the bullseye, because if you can be consistent you can then work on your aim. So you've achieved the difficult bit.
