The Olympic Games are ancient, dating back in one form to the 8th century B. They won out over other possible first time sports, karate, squash and roller sports — as well as two sports that were dropped from the Olympic games: baseball and softball. This year, the Games added two new sports: golf and rugby sevens.
Wrestling (both freestyle and Greco-Roman) was supposed to have been cut after the 2016 games, but won its way back for the 2020 Games.
The sport has missed only a single Olympics in 1900.
Other sports also seem to be teetering on the edge of inclusion in the Games.
They include modern pentathlon, taekwondo and badminton.
