The Romanians and Czechoslovakia withdrew at the last moment, which left the USA, represented by a team of Californian students, and France as the only two competitors. The USA, coached by former Wallaby winger Daniel Carroll, at the time a student at Stanford University in California, surprised the French with the vigour of their game and the precision of their defensive work and won the match Not unexpectedly, the French dispatched the newcomers from Eastern Europe by a record margin of 61 points to 3 — according to some sources the score was actually — scoring a record 13 tries in the process.
The walkover win must have given the French players and public a sense of invincibility and high expectations, exacerbated by an intense and partisan media campaign.

The Olympic final was played at the same Stade Colombes in Paris on May 18, before a strongly partisan crowd of about 50, The Olympic Congress, at which Baillet-Latour was elected as the second IOC President, signalled the beginning of a drive against team sports and despite the vigorous protestations of the Dutch students keen to have Rugby in the programme of the 9th Olympic Games in Amsterdam, Rugby was dropped from the Olympic programme.
Rugby was never again part of the Olympic Games, though its American Football cousin appeared as a demonstration sport at the Olympics in Los Angeles.
Pugh convinced the World Rugby Council that Olympic membership — initially as a non-participation sport would be beneficial to rugby and offer the World Rugby member Unions membership to their National Olympic Committees. The fact that membership to the National Olympic bodies has been beneficial for rugby in these countries is well documented.
Moving on the Lines
The demand to get rugby back in the Olympics mounted as more rugby nations from Africa, Asia, Oceania and Americas joined the World Rugby. A significant step in the process of acceptance back into the Olympic Movement was achieved at a ceremony held in Cardiff in November , when the World Rugby was officially confirmed as a Recognised International Federation of the IOC.
At that ceremony, International Olympic Committee President, Juan-Antonio Samaranch, pointed out that rugby's history and values were very much in tune with the Olympic philosophy and traditions. This historic meeting in Cardiff led to World Rugby representation at annual IOC meetings and consideration for inclusion in the programme of future Olympic Games.
Women’s Rugby Sevens evolution has arrived – Griffith News
The 21st century The global development of rugby through the rapidly increasing number of Unions affiliated to the World Rugby and the explosion in participation and support for both the Fifteens and Sevens disciplines of the Game cannot be denied over the last years. This rapid growth reflected growing awareness and support for rugby within the Olympic Movement, culminating in a recommendation in from the Olympic Programme Commission to the IOC Session, that Rugby Sevens be included in the Beijing Olympic Games.
While the World Rugby had proposed the inclusion of either Rugby Sevens or Fifteens, it was the Olympic Programme Commission that recommended Rugby Sevens as it felt this fast-paced youthful version of the Game was best suited to the multi-sport environment, as has been proven by the huge success of Sevens in both the Commonwealth and Asian Games, where it is now a core sport.
Although rugby was short listed for consideration in the Olympic Programme, the IOC again decided not to introduce new sports and the goal of becoming an Olympic sport remained tantalisingly out of reach. The newly elected World Rugby Chairman, Bernard Lapasset of France, made the readmission of rugby into the sporting programme of the Olympic Games one of his top priorities. World Rugby strongly believes that Rugby Sevens will add value to the Olympic Games by attracting an engaged international audience, young and old, to a globally popular sport which embodies the Olympic ideals of friendship and fair play.
