Just as many other sports, each sport must petition the Olympic Sports Committee to get approval to be an Olympic sport. There is usually a political aspect to making this decision as well as the popularity of the sport.
Many countries, including the USA, have been petitioning the Olympic Sports Committee. Years ago, the US was not able to be considered eligible for Olympic participation in Bowling because there were three national organizations that governed bowling in the US (ABC, WIBC and YABA). In 2005, the three organizations merged to become the USBC, which will now allow the US to help work towards this goal.
Bowling has never been part of the traditional Summer or Winter Olympics. However bowling has been a Special Olympics sport since 1975.
The USBC (United States Bowling Congress) is currently part of working towards bringing the sport of bowling to the Olympics.
