Best Answer

From the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris until the 1992, demonstration sports were played at both the Winter and Summer Olympics. These were chosen at the behest of the host. Some of the sports graduated from being a demonstration sport to being a medal-proper sport such as Badminton, judo and Taekwondo.

From 1996 the Olympic Games had grown too much that there were no longer the resources available to accommodate the demonstration sports.
