Softball at the Olympics

Softball is an event for women only. Softball was first officially on the program at the Olympic Games in 1996, but dropped from the Olympic program after the 2008 Olympics (along with baseball).

Baseball and softball (joint bid) was one of the eight sports that was listed for inclusion for the 2020 Olympic program, and made it to the final three (with squash and wrestling) but lost out to wrestling. The sport continues to lobby for inclusion.
