RUGBY
The violent fight that broke out between French and American players in the final of the Olympic tournament in Paris in 1924 sounded the death knell for rugby as an Olympic game. It was dropped from the games thereafter. No doubt this exclusion from the Olympics is the reason why rugby has not spread as universally as football and basketball. In spite of the creation of a Rugby world Cup, the International Board officials and the IOC are having talks on a return to the Olympic programme for the sport, which may perhaps feature in the 2008 games.
