How does the Olympic Committee decide which sports such as Roller Skating become an Olympic sport?

Started Mar. 22, 2023

Abstract or project description

This paper reveals the process and challenges different sports face to become an Olympic sport. The Olympics Committee takes in many criteria in deciding what sports get added to the Olympic Games. We will be diving into the way the Olympic Committee makes a decision about the inclusion of a sport into the Olympics and how it impacts the way a sport is structured today. Becoming an Olympic sport is crucial for various sports because it increases revenue opportunities such as sponsorship and media rights deals, popularity in terms of participation and viewership, and growth in the sport. One of the sports that are aiming to become an Olympic Sport is Roller Skating which is a sport popular in many countries and featured around the world. Even though Roller Skating has been gaining more and more public interest, the media attention it has received remained stagnant. There are several forms of Roller Skating that could attract different people, especially the youth which is one of the Olympic Committee’s criteria for deciding which sports to pick. This paper will discuss how Rolling Skating must showcase and adjust its appeal to reflect its value to be a part of the Olympic Games.
