How many countries must enter the Olympic competition each year for the sport to be included in the Olympic games?

The number of countries entered in a sport doesn't have anything to do with whether a sport is competed in the Olympics. Currently (after the 2008 Beijing Games) there are 26 Summer Olympic sports: Aquatics (Diving, Swimming, Synchronized swimming, and Water polo), Archery, Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Boxing, Canoeing, Cycling, Equestrian, Fencing, Field hockey, Football, Gymnastics, Handball, Judo, Modern pentathlon, Rowing, Sailing, Shooting, Softball, Table tennis, Taekwondo, Tennis, Triathlon, Volleyball, Weightlifting, and Wrestling. Additionally, there are 32 sports which, while not competed in the Olympics, are considered Olympic sports by the International Olympic Committee: Air sports, Bandy, Baseball, Billiard sports, Boules, Bowling, Bridge, Chess, Climbing, Cricket, DanceSport, Golf, Karate, Korfball, Lifesaving, Motorcycle sport, Netball, Orienteering, Pelote Basque, Polo, Powerboating, Racquetball, Roller sports, Rugby, Softball, Squash, Sumo, Surfing, Tug of war, Underwater sports, Water skiing, and Wushu. The IOC includes sports in its program that they believe are widely practiced around the world and will draw a lot of viewers. The IOC meets and reviews the sports competed in the Summer Olympics after each Games. Members vote on the sports to be included at the SummerOlympics following the next Summer Olympics. Following the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, the IOC members met and voted to remove softball and baseball from the Summer Olympic program after the 2008 Games in Beijing. They voted not to replace them for the 2012 Games in London. The 26 sports listed above (Aquatics (Diving, Swimming, etc) will be those that will be competed at the 2012 Summer Games. The IOC will meet next year to determine the sports that will be competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics. So, a sport is included in the Olympics if the members of the IOC vote for it to be included and a sport is excluded if the members of the IOC vote for it to be excluded. Rule 48 of the Olympic Charter states that at least 15 sports must be included in the Summer Games and a maximum of 28 sports can be included in the Summer Games. This means there are currently two sports that could be included in the 2016 Games that are not currently in the Games. When the IOC meets next year (2009), in all probability, two of the 32 sports listed above (Air sports, Bandy, Baseball, etc) that are considered Olympic sports but not currently competed in the Olympics will be added.

Who decides what sports are added to the Olympics?

The "Olympic Program" is the Program of sports, disciplines and events decided by the IOC for the Games of the Olympiad and the Olympic Winter Games. The Games of the Olympiad must contain at least fifteen Olympic sports. No such minimum exists for the Olympic Winter Games, which are reserved for sports practiced on snow or ice. The admission or exclusion of a sport falls within the competence of the IOC Session. A decision to include or exclude a discipline or event falls within the competence of the IOC Executive Board. To be included in the Program for the Olympic Games, an Olympic sport or discipline must fulfill the following criteria: for the Games of the Olympiad, only sports/disciplines widely practiced by men in at least 75 countries and on four continents, and by women in at least 40 countries and on three continents may be included; for the Olympic Winter Games, only sports/disciplines widely practiced in at least 25 countries and on three continents may be included. An event, being a competition in an Olympic sport or in one of its disciplines and resulting in a ranking, gives rise to the award of medals and diplomas. To be included in the Program, an event must, first and foremost, enjoy a recognized position internationally in both numerical and geographical terms and have featured at least twice in world or continental championships. Sports, disciplines or events in which performance depends essentially on mechanical propulsion are not acceptable. Apart from exceptional circumstances, the Program of sports and disciplines is finalized seven years before each Olympic Games, and the Program of events is finalized four years before the Games. Subject to the agreement of the International Federation concerned and the Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games, the IOC may depart from these time limits in order to include a discipline or event in the Program. The Centennial Olympic Congress, the "Congress of Unity", held in Paris in 1994, recommended that the principal criteria for inclusion in the Olympic Program should be the universality and popularity of the sports. The Congress Final Document also added that, in order to evolve, the Olympic Program should also take into consideration the development of sports in contemporary society, as well as respecting certain traditions.
