As most of you have seen by now Rio won the bid for the 2016 olympics. Now if I understand correctly every host country is allowed to introduce a sport they feel is part of their culture. So what are the chances that BJJ/grappling is going to be the new olympic sport. I know I've read things in the past year or so about Brazil lobbying for it to be introduced but now to me anyway it seems almost certin. any thoughts on this?
