Popular Sports Included in the Olympics

Athletics Basketball Boxing Cycling Gymnastics Rowing

The modern Olympic Games are a truly global event, with athletes representing countries from all corners of the world. However, not every sport is included in the Olympics. Some, like football (soccer) and cricket, are simply too popular to limit to a single competition. Others, like chess and cheerleading, have unsuccessfully lobbied for inclusion. So what sports are included in the Olympics? Here are some of the most popular:

NFL legend Larry Csonka toasts Commanders for ending Eagles’ perfect season: ‘I’m a Washington fan tonight’

NFL legend Larry Csonka toasts Commanders for ending Eagles’ perfect season: ‘I’m a Washington fan tonight’

NFL legend Larry Csonka offered a toast to the Washington Commanders after the NFC East squad ended the Philadelphia Eagles’ pursuit of an undefeated season on Monday night.

Csonka was a part of the only NFL team to go undefeated in the regular season and the playoffs when he and the Miami Dolphins did it in 1972. 

Tom Brady’s New England Patriots led the team to an undefeated regular season in 2007 but lost to the New York Giants in one of the biggest Super Bowl upsets ever.

The Hall of Fame running back had a beverage in his hand and tweeted a picture of his toast.


“Thank you #WashingtonCommanders As in 2020 when you knocked out the #Steelers I’m a Washington fan tonight!” Csonka wrote.

While the myth around the NFL is that Dolphins players from the ’72 team pop champagne after an undefeated team goes down, the late Don Shula explained in 2011 no such celebration ever happens.

The Biggest Marathons Ban Convicted Dopers for Life. Antidoping Officials Cry Foul.


It is one of the most punitive rules in international sports.

Commit a doping offense that merits a suspension of three months or more and forget running the New York City Marathon as a professional. One transgression, whether it involves mistakenly taking cold medicine with a banned substance or intentionally injecting human growth hormone, garners a lifetime ban from the world’s biggest marathon and every other race that New York Road Runners organizes.

Clean athletes love the rule. So do the race organizers, who grew tired of worrying that they were paying appearance fees and prize money to runners they suspected of using performance enhancing drugs.

Matthews leads Leafs over Capitals in home opener

Matthews leads Leafs over Capitals in home opener


TORONTO – Sheldon Keefe wanted a response.

The Maple Leafs head coach got exactly that in his team’s home opener thanks to a familiar face — and a couple new ones.

Auston Matthews scored the winner in the third period and Ilya Samsonov made 24 saves against his former team as Toronto defeated the Washington Capitals 3-2 on Thursday.

The Leafs were coming off a poor showing in a 4-3 road loss in Montreal some 24 hours earlier in their curtain-raiser that made for an uncomfortable flight home.

Keefe gave a blistering assessment of that performance and wasn’t any happier Thursday morning when he met the media following a pointed team meeting.
