You wouldn't think of pole dancing as a legitimate sport but the Global Association of International Sports Federation (GAISF) has given the International Pole Sports Federation (IPSF) its blessing as a genuine sport and it's all thanks to an 11-year battle for respect from 41-year old Katie Coates.  She argued successfully that pole dancing has morphed from erotic dancing into fitness exercise since the turn of the century.  The International Pole Sports Federation ash been holding amateur competitions to bring well-founded rules and meaningful competitions to show the athletic ability pole dancers, that they must have to participate. Katie has a goal of having competitive pole dancing as a sport in the 2024 Olympics.
