The IOC have just voted to include Rugby Sevens in the Olympic Programme from 2016 onwards!
Members of the International Olympic Committee listened to presentations led by Bernard Lapasset and including Agustin Pichot and Jonah Lomu, and were convinced that the sport would bring something special to the Olympic party.
81 of the 93 members voted to include the sport.
Great news. Let’s all go to Rio…
