Selecting the Olympic Sports
1 There are 28 sports permitted in the Summer Olympic Games. The list of Olympic Sports has many of the world’s best-loved sports on it, such as baseball, judo, soccer, tennis, and volleyball. This list of sports hadn’t changed in 70 years
5 and the process for changing these sports is long and difficult. That is why it was surprising news when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced that it was studying new sports for the list. At a meeting in Singapore in 2005, the IOC voted on each of the 28 sports from the 2004 Olympic
10 Games in Athens, Greece. Twenty-six of the 28 sports were selected for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, which took place in London, England. The two sports that did not receive 50 percent of the votes were baseball and softball. Because these two sports were not selected, the IOC
15 started the process of voting for two new sports. The five sports to select from were roller skating, golf, rugby, squash, and karate. After the first vote, karate and squash were submitted to the IOC for the final vote.
To become an Olympic sport, a sport must receive two-
20 thirds of the votes of the IOC. When the final vote took place, squash received 39 “yes” votes and 63 “no” votes. Karate received 38 “yes” votes and 63 “no” votes. It meant that neither squash nor karate would feature in the 2012 Olympic Games. And sad fans didn’t believe that their sports could be
25 selected for the 2016 Olympic Games.
