GLOBAL RUGBY FAMILY DELIGHTED AT 7S INCLUSION AT 2024 OLYMPICS

LIMA, Peru - World Rugby and the global rugby family are excited by the International Olympic Committee’s decision to retain all 28 sports that featured at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games program.

The decision, taken by the IOC membership at the IOC Session in Lima ratifies the earlier recommendation of the IOC Executive Board and is another compelling endorsement of rugby sevens, which made a spectacular debut at Rio 2016.
