Russell-
Interesting to see that golf made the cut (no pun intended). It’s a valid point about golf not being played much there, but when I read this morning about “Rugby Seven” making it for 2016, it occurred to me that probably like most Americans, I don’t know much about the sport. In fact, I had to look up the number of players in other forms of Rugby (15, for rugby union). It will be interesting to learn more about the sport, which I’m guessing what will happen in South America with golf. And perhaps that is part of the whole point of introducing new sports in the Olympics.

Rugby is a fantastic sport with a huge worldwide following. Glad that the IOC include it in the Olympics
