In 1900, the former President of the Olympic Committee Coubertin introduced rugby to the Olympics. In the 1900 London Olympics, 1920 Antwerp Olympics, and 1924 Paris Olympics, rugby was an official event. In the four Olympic rugby games, the US team won two championships, and the French team and the Australian team won one championship each. After Coubertin resigned in 1925, de Mayet Latour became the chairman of the Olympic Committee. Since then, group competitions have been restricted by the Olympic Committee, and rugby has been cancelled from the Olympics.
In 1987, the International Rugby Council held the first World Cup Men’s Rugby Championship, and in 1991 the first World Women’s Rugby Championship was held.

Rugby is popular all over the world with its unique charm.
