Should Rugby be a Sport at the Olympics?

Rugby was played at the Olympics in the years 1900, 1908, 1920 and 1924, and after a long wait it was voted in 2009 back onto the Olympic program for the 2016 Games. A Rugby 7s tournament was added to the sporting program for the 2016 Olympic Games, though not everyone agrees that it should have.

Should rugby be back in the Olympics? You have had your say, and it was overwhelmingly that it deserves its place on the Olympic program. After a total of 593 votes (from 2009-2016), over 80% of respondents said 'yes' to rugby's inclusion back in the Olympics. And after a very successful debut of the Rugby 7s format in 2016 it looks like it is here to stay.
