Make Pump It Up! into an olympic sport for 2016!

Pump It Up! is a dancing-rhythm game that deserves far more media coverage than it is currently receiving. This game can be as physically demanding, in both speed and endurance, as any sport currently in the world today. There is a huge fan base worldwide in Latin America, South America, Europe, Asia and North America. There are even national and world tournaments that don't receive near the amount of media coverage in pop culture that one would expect them to have, but these tournaments breed hyper-competitive, hungry athletes who are turning the arcade into a training chamber.

Let's help spread the popularity of rhythm gaming for the future, and aim for it to be an olympic sport for 2016 and beyond!
