Expendables 2 star and all-around action movie bad-ass Jean-Claude Van Damme is a man who is not a stranger to getting a lot of press. JCVD’s press tour for Expendables 2 also happens to fall in line with when the whole world is talking about the 2012 London Olympics, which is currently going on as I type. The Olympics, of course, are the worldwide event that happens every few years and brings together the best athletes from across the globe in a vast array of different sports to compete for medals and prestige. Absent from the Summer Olympics is any form of Kickboxing or combat sport outside of Boxing, Wrestling, Judo and possibly Tae Kwon Do, depending on how you value Olympic TKD.
When asked about his love for Kickboxing and if it would make for a good Olympic sport, JCVD wasn’t entirely convinced.
