OK. realistically it's too late for it to happen in Rio, but we need to keep campaigns such as this one alive until we get it done! Waiting another 4 years to start again will be too late! -DT
How does a sport become Olympic?
To make it onto the Olympic programme, a sport first has to be recognised: it must be administered by an International Federation which ensures that the sport's activities follow the Olympic Charter. If it is widely practised around the world and meets a number of criteria established by the IOC session, a recognised sport may be added to the Olympic programme on the recommendation of the IOC's Olympic Programme Commission.http://www.olympic.org/sports
