The first Olympic softball competition was at the 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta. The United States won the gold medal, China won silver, and Australia won bronze at the 1996 Olympics.
Baseball and softball were removed from the sports played at the Olympics after the 2008 Games in Beijing.

Their reasoning was that softball was a world-wide sport yet. The United States was dominating all the other teams they played against. This is really ironic because the United States did not win the last Olympic games.
