Your classifications here lack consistency. Your criteria as to what qualifies as a sport seems to be based on what sports you like and what you don't. I mean seriously, what possible justification is there to saying that, on one hand, diving qualifies as a sport. But if there is somebody else diving at the same time in synchronisation, then it suddenly stops being a sport???

That is like saying that the 400m track race is a sport, but the 4x400m relay isn't.
if doing something at the same time qualifies as a sport, it will open the door for other events too. we could have synchronised pummel horse, parallel bars etc.
