Golf was reintroduced to the Olympic sports programme for the Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games along with rugby sevens. Meanwhile, five further ‘new’ sports are joining the Olympic sports programme at Tokyo 2020 as part of the International Olympic Committee’s Agenda 2020 recommendations and innovations. This case study aims to help those new sports - as well as ones with future Olympic ambitions - assess the challenges and opportunities of joining the Olympic sports programme. Using the learnings garnered by golf, this case study takes a look at the operational opportunities and challenges that Olympic programme inclusion provides as well as benefits and legacies, so that future International Federations (IFs), National Federations (NFs), Organising Committees (OCOGs) and associated stakeholders can maximise the opportunities for their sports and athletes that are provided as a result of this Agenda 2020 innovation.
