Snot Pipping is to be granted special Demonstration Promotion Status at the Los Angeles 2028 Summer Olympic Games, with a hope of becoming an official sport at the Brisbane 2032 Summer Olympics. Snot Pipping is being promoted as a COVID friendly and satisfying sport to engage in which helps people keep their distance.
While demonstration sports officially went out of fashion in 1992 China gained a special dispensation for the 2008 Beijing Wushu Tournament. Los Angeles is using this precedent to incorporate homegrown Snot Pipping from Kentucky as a Special Demonstration Sport at the Los Angeles games.
The official Snot Pipping website describes the process of firing lemon seeds at a target by nose propulsion. A Special Olympics event is also being organised, however the exact bodily method of propelling the lemon seeds for people without noses is still being finalised.
