Cheerleading is not in the Olympics. The difficulty of an activity has no impact on whether or not it is a sport. For instance, it is much harder to build a scyscraper than play football, but building skyscrapers isn't a sport. Further, cheerleading does not qualify as a sport as there is no competition. Sideline cheerleaders take part in no competition - they are just as much a part of a 'sport' as some guy in the stands eating a hot dog.
In numerous court cases, judges have ruled that even 'competitive cheerleading' is not a sport, as it lacks any sort of cohesive rules, organization, or even real championships. It is not considered a sport by the NCAA, nor is any championship offered. Unlike real sports, 'competitive cheerleading' factors in unathletic factors such as 'appearance' towards scores 'Competitive cheerleading' may one day reach the status of being a sport, if it develops standarized rules (like real sports) and cohesive organizations (like real sports), but as of today it simply is not a sport.
