They don't really but wasn't that the essence of Olympic events?

Almost seems like there are events that don't really measure athletic ability but are catered more to perfecting a skill.

You're talking about swimming. This conversation is about synchronized diving. It's still called synchronized diving.

When you running from a Bear, you better be able to hurdle,

but wait, let me take my time and wait for the bear so that we can coordinate our plunge over the cliff into the river.

I don't know, where is the line between things that require athletics and things that can be perfect through building the skill for it?

A bear can run up to 35 mph, more than likely you're dead before you even know it if you try to run. That's why all the experts tell you to look big and make a lot of noise to try to scare them. That is unless you spook a mom and cubs, then you're definitely dead.
