“If pessimism were an Olympic sport, I would still not win it”

"If pessimism was/were an Olympic sport...” is the start of a joke. “If pessimism was an Olympic sport… I’d still probably only get bronze at best. #Olympics” was posted on Twitter by Xander Wardell on August 9, 2012. “I’m so pessimistic at the moment, that if pessimism were an Olympic sport, I wouldn’t fancy my chances” was posted on Twitter by pnelnik on August 20, 2012.

“If pessimism was a Olympic sport, I would still not win it” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on June 28, 2019, and on Reddit—Dadjokes on October 22, 2019.

“If procrastination were an Olympic sport, I’d compete in it later” is a related saying.
