As you are well aware, the Winter Olympics never have as high a viewership as the summer games, partly because the sports are things that nobody cares about. The standard response seem to be combining different sports…biathalon, etc.
So, I present…Figure Fencing, a combination of figure skating and fencing. Instead of the fencers being confined to a narrow strip, they can use the entire rink. And while a touch from a simple lunge would still be worth one point, you can increase the value by getting a touch as you come out of an axel, salchow, or camel.
