Summer Olympic Games 2024 Sports Programme

Recommended Posts

No, wrestling wasn't voted a core sport then - the 25 core sports for Tokyo 2020 were voted en bloc, as the Olympic Charter said, thus the EB proposal of voting wrestling as an additional sport together with squash and baseball/softball, with the happy end for wrestling for 2020 and 2024, as well as rugby 7 and golf were voted additional for 2016 and 2020, so they weren't proposed to core sports nor the additional sports.

 

I checked the Olympic Charter archive - in Buenos Aires in 2013, when the Charter from 2011 was in force, there was this term of "sports core" consisting of 25 sports, this wasn't changed during Session in Buenos Aires, but the next version, from the 2015, already hasn't the term "sports core" (it was BLR 45.2 for summer and BLR 45.3 for winter).

 

So this discussion is in fact all about history.

A few bits about Paris additionnal sports in today's l'Equipe.

 

  • 5 sports max, IOC is pushing for less
  • Domestic popularity is not a priority anymore
  • First list will be sent by Paris 2024 next month (no more sports could be added after that), will be released during IOC next session (June).
  • Only  ~10 sports really stand a chance : The five from Tokyo, wakeboarding, squash, wushu, bowling, pétanque and billard 

 

They also confirm that additional sports will have to fit with the Paris 2024 venues map and that the additional sports quotas will have to fit under the 10 500 overall athletes quotas (Baseball beeing :nopompom:)

Karate, TWD, Judo, Wushu at the same olympics. So much fun. :nopompom:

 

Thankfully, I don't believe they will be chosen. Global youth appeal sounds like it will be the main critera from now on.

What do you think the chances are of baseball/softball being retained for 2024?

Small, unfortunately. They were allready small to start with, but with additional sports quotas counting in the overall sport quotas* their chances are severely reduced (or of any other team sport for that matter).

 

The venue is also an issue. The french federation do have a plan for a national stadium, but it's in another part of Paris, it doesn't fit with other venues at all.

 

A month ago, there was a rumour that baseball5 could be pushed over baseball/softball, probably because of these two reasons.

 

*It won't be the case in Tokyo

So obviously pétanque and billiards.

 

Spoiler

And bowling, judging by the fact we were surrounded by 95% screaming 6-year olds when going to the bowling alley a few days ago.
