Make rugby an Olypmic sport

Clicking on this link will take you to a petition calling for the IOC to adopt rugby sevens as an Olympic sport. Were this to happen, it would be a very big deal for rugby in general and particularly for the sport in Korea. As an Olympic sport, rugby would start to get serious attention including money, organisational support, facilities and probably most importantly, talent management. The latter is crucial for Korea both on the playing front as well as in administration and refereeing (see earlier posts). As an Olympic sport, rugby would start to see rhyme and reason to its development in please add yuor weight to the campaign and get friends and family and colleagues signing up too! Last time I checked, Korea only had 14 signatures...not good for a top 25 country!!
