It must be an interesting committee to be involved in, as both the summer and winter Olympics have new sports added every four years, this means others are retired. (Some probably for the best!)
Back in 2016 the Olympic Committee decided to add four ‘new’ sports to the event for 2020:
Also both golf and rugby were back on, as both had been voted as official sports at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Rugby was fun to watch...and if golf is your thing - well I expect you enjoyed it too.
Whether these new sports will be part of the 2024 Olympics we’ll have to wait to see, as since the first modern Games in 1896, several sports have disappeared completely from the Olympic schedule including Croquet and Tug-of-war, neither a real surprise...sorry all croquet fans!
The 2020 schedule included 33 sports and 46 categories and this meant a grand total of 339 medals up for grabs. Great Britain did incredibly well coming 4th in the overall table. 🙌🏻
We took a cheeky opportunity to put Chunk on the table too, as we’re pretty proud of the amount of awards we’ve won over the years!
This inspired us to create our Gold Medal Winners Box, launched last week, intended as a limited edition box, it has already been hugely popular - so much so we’re keeping it on for a little longer.
