I am not sure if I translated correctly from the chinese papers - baseball and rugby were dropped from 2012 olympics which explains why there were 26 instead of 28 games.

My Paper mentioned two sports : 棒球和垒球.
i thought 棒球 is for men, 垒球 is for women, same sports though.

Rugby is 橄榄球.

Rugby to my knowledge has never been an Olympic sport. Softball was, but predominantly for women. In Rio in 2016, there has been some talk about bringing at least rugby into the Olympics...and possibly golf (which once was included, but hasn't been for years).

Ok, I've changed the subject to include Paralympics. It will start in 12 days and 7 hours time from now:

ST today has a special feature on the 2 Paralymics swimmers Theresa and Ping Xiu. All the best to them and the rest of the athletes.
