Wow! Now just waiting for Sir Ben to backtrack on his 'I ain't doing Rio' pledge.

We would have heard more about it, if this was the case.  I do believe there is a IOC rule that does exist.

If this is true, then it's quite a scoop! If the IOC rule exists, what event did London 2012 choose as their 'wild card'?

They didn't, but China did, I think London was interested in implementing golf or rugby sevens. I believe they implemented wushu. The star could return as a demonstration sport could it not.

"Demonstration Sports" are no more- it's now "core sports" and "additional sports". Rio's "additional sports" are Rugby Sevens and Golf.


Yes, Golf.


Rugby and Golf are gone entirely in 2020, and Wrestling is in the list of possible "additional sports" (up to three)

That still doesnt explain if the star is back in. It would be good to know sailing anarchies source. There has been little word of it on y and y before.

I have to admit it's the first I've heard of this - as said earlier, if this is true then SA have picked up a real scoop - good on 'em!

Justice at last - Olympic sailing will not be reserved for the dwarves!

By my understanding it means I can't actually see where the ability to add an event would come from. It did used to be that hosts could add a "demonstration sport", but that's no longer the case. The "additional sports" (which count for the medals table) are decided by the IOC. The IOC, not the hosts or the sport governing body, have the last word on how many events (and thus medals) a sport (and I think discipline within a sport- think cycling which has track, road, mountain etc as disciplines) has.
 
My understanding would be that a host city cannot add a sport, discipline or event, and therefore the story is either fundeamentally wrong, or is right but with the wrong explanation.
