Hasn't this already been discussed? It's more of a hobby or past time to me. Has potential, but it's not competitive enough imo. I'm glad that it's not a mainstream sport! That would suck.
yes or no and why.

no, but then again, I guess it also depends on the person you ask's definition of a sport.  Is speedcubing a sport?  to some, yes, to others no.

For most people no. For others yes. In the same way juggling is a sport for some.
There are diabolo competitions so it can be classed as a sport, however, I don't know anyone who does diabolo just for competitions.

Has anyone noticed that most people have written "yes or no any why."?

If you can't or bother to read finnish use google translator and paste all text there.

For me, it's not a sport, because it's mostly all about creativity and creativity is very hard to judge.
But playing diabolo limbers up, so a little bit of sport.

Ah yeah i forgot: Yes or no and why ;)

A diabolo is a toy.  Using a diabolo in it's most basic and common form is merely a physical activity.

Diabolos offer the POTENTIAL to be used within both art and sport, but they are not naturally a part of either.  I feel fairly certain that the majority of diabolo owners that I've met have been kids who've purchased a packaged set from a toyshop and learned no more than 5 tricks.  They don't compete, they don't read diabolo.ca, they don't create anything, yet they're most certainly the largest user base.

okay I don't actually mean to write the exact words yes or no and why I meant to explain why you think it is a sport or not.

It can be, but for me it's far from it.

Oh and of course the obligatory yes or no and y.

GbH, said it the best. I'm promoting diabolo in both ways, i feel that it's limited to think that diabolo is any single thing. It's not about the object itself more it's about the way you use the object. Think about javelin throwing. It's sport when you try to throw it as far as you can and take part in competitions. But you could use the same stick for fishing, creating art etc.

When you define how you use diabolo it's easier to define whether diabolo in that case is sport, art or something other. ;)

So track and field athletics are not sports?

No.
It is a circus or juggling skill and a hobbie.
