I can’t seem to find any mention of exhibition sports for the 2004 Olympics in Athens. Are there any? If so, what are they? If not, why not? Haven’t all the recent games included an exhibition sport or two?
I don’t believe there are any. The IOC probably doesn’t want any for now. They want to drop sports because the games are getting a bit too big. Baseball and softball are on the list to be dropped if they can’t show wider popularity. Tennis and modern pentathlon are in danger also.
The IOC decided about ten years ago to eliminate exhibition and demonstration sports from all Olympics after that time.
