Rugby Returns To Rio 2016 Olympics

Rugby has found its way back to the Olympic games after several years of its been absent from the games. Rugby appeared in the Olympics programme four times between 1900 and 1924 before it finally found its way back in the 2016 edition.

Interestingly, twelve nations will be available to compete for the gold in the game in both men and women sessions with a time frame of seven minutes in each game, while the final will have to be ten minutes. This is to allow room for more matches to be played during the Olympics.
