The Problem

Fifteen sports were chosen for the Winter Olympics, although there is always discussions to add more sports in future Games.   You are the head of the International Olympic Committee.  What criteria should be used when selecting new sports for the Games, and which sports might be the best additions?

What sport should make the cut?

Students will review criteria used by the International Olympic Committee for choosing sports, and decide how to make a decision about which sports to add to the Games.
