Olympic Sports that You Probably Didn’t Know Were Olympic Sports

If you haven’t tuned in already, the Olympic Games started on Friday, July 23rd.  Countries have gathered in Tokyo to compete for a world title. With new sports being added every year, it’s hard to keep up with what’s in the Olympics nowadays. And this year they have added some new sports to the mix… (now saying sport might be an overstatement).

What qualifies a sport to be in the Olympics? A sport that is widely practiced by at least men in 75 countries and on four continents and by women in no less than 40 countries, in three continents. So if you’re wondering why your favorite activity isn’t in the Olympics that is probably why. For this reason, chess, automobile racing, and dance have been kept out of the Olympics.

Let’s take a look at what did qualify.

3×3 Basketball

If you don’t know what 3×3 basketball is, just go to your local basketball court and you’ll get the idea.

Cycling BMX Freestyle

Cycling BMX freestyle makes its debut at the Tokyo Olympics. The riders will be scored based on the execution and difficulty of their ride. They get 60 seconds to show off their skills.

Modern Pentathalon

So you’ve probably heard of the triathlon, so essentially this is taking that idea and making it “modern”. The five sports include; fencing, running, shooting, swimming, and show jumping. I’m going to be completely honest, I have no clue how you would train for this at all.


sailing, olympics

Yup, I don’t know either, I guess it’s a sport.


olympics, shooting

The definition of this sport is:

Shooting is a tense and testing sport that requires immense skill and nerve. Success depends on staying cool under the enormous pressure of Olympic competition.

So basically, it’s not as easy as it seems.


olympics, skateboarding

I actually like that skateboarding has been added to the Olympics it gives some pazzazz.

Sport Climbing

If you like rock climbing this is the sport for you.
