After 128 Years Cricket Set To Return In Olympics
This article is about After 128 Years Cricket Set To Return In Olympics For 2028. In planning the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics, the organizers are excited about adding some new sports to the mix. They’re thinking of including cricket, flag football, lacrosse, squash, baseball, and softball.
Recent reports suggest that the people behind the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics are really keen on having cricket, flag football, lacrosse, squash, baseball, and softball as part of the Games.
These choices need the green light from the big shots at the International Olympic Committee (IOC). They’re going to discuss it in Mumbai soon, and word has it that approval is likely.
Right now, the IOC hasn’t said much about it.
We’ll soon know the final decision from the LA28 organizers, according to the Guardian.
Here’s the interesting part—three of these sports have never been in the Olympics before. If given the thumbs up, flag football, a favorite in the U.S. thanks to the NFL, plus squash and lacrosse, will make their Olympic debut.
Cricket, a globally loved sport, might come back after being in the 1900 Games. This is after the success of women’s cricket at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
No word yet from the International Cricket Council about all this.
Baseball has been in and out of the Games. It made a comeback in Tokyo after skipping 2012 and 2016 but won’t be in Paris.
Softball, played by female athletes, has been in five Summer Games before but won’t be part of the Paris Games.
So, some new faces might join the Olympic family in 2028, and some old friends might take a break. Let’s wait and see!
