List of Summer Olympics Events

We have the list of Summer Olympics events with Paris 2024 coming up soon. The list is available as a printable PDF and image format too. Since the original Olympic Games in 1896, the number of events has grown over the years. There are five events that have been held at every single Olympic Games. These are: athletics, cycling, fencing, gymnastics, and swimming. There were nine sports in the original games. In 2012 we had 26, 33 in 2020, and 32 in 2024. We have the list of what to expect this year, what’s new in 2028, and what’s been dropped for you below.

Printable List of Summer Olympics Events

So, in my experience having a printable list of summer Olympics events lets you plan out which matches or games that you want to watch. We have the list posted for you in PDF here and in image format above. You add this with the schedule for your favorite event like say swimming, and you won’t miss a beat of the action. If you live in the U.S., NBC has the TV airing rights for the Olympics for what feels like a bazillion years, so they have gotten way more user-friendly to check out the action. 

2028 Olympic Sports

For the 2028 Olympics, we’ll see some movement in the sports that we’ll see. Right now, there’s some work to do to see boxing, modern pentathlon, and weightlifting added back to the mix. Some other new or returning sports to the Summer games in LA include:

  • Squash
  • Lacrosse
  • Cricket
  • Flag Football
  • Baseball
  • Softball

A lot of fans are excited to see softball come back into the mix. The World Baseball Classic has kind of filled the international itch for baseball while it took 2024 off from the Summer Games, so it will be cool to see it make a comeback. Flag Football and Lacrosse should be interesting. And Squash is squash 🙂 Events that have been removed are karate and breakdancing.
