Snippet: Many Olympic sports are popular around the world at all times, but some sports only get attention during Olympic years. Summer sports such as team handball, archery, and rowing, and winter events such as biathlon, don’t generate much interest. When adding new sports to the Olympics, the IOC looks for something with worldwide popularity. Over the years, sports such as croquet, polo, and tug-of-war have been part of the Olympics. Baseball, lacrosse, and cricket have come and gone from the summer Olympics over the years.
