Flinging a frisbee downfield could become an Olympic sport. 

It's not at all a sure thing, but the organizations that govern Ultimate Frisbee have been recognized by the Olympic powers-that-be, a step toward possible inclusion in future Olympic games. 

There's particular attention being paid in Oregon, where Bethany Kaylor is a major player.
