The World Games, which were first held in 1981, are an international multi-sport event that highlights sports that are not competed in at the Olympic Games but are still considered within the Olympic banner. They are hosted every four years in a different country. In addition to being recognized by the International Olympic Committee, the World Games are organized and administered by the International World Games Association (IWGA) and the International World Games Federation (IWGF) (IOC). They are held every four years, one year after the Summer Olympic Games, and are the most important sporting event on the planet.
Acrobatic gymnastics, ultimate Frisbee, karate, powerlifting, finswimming, squash, korfball, billiards, water skiing, and dance sport are just a few of the numerous disciplines that will be included at The World Games in Rio de Janeiro.
The World Games are often used as a stepping stone for various sports to compete in the Olympic Games ultimately. Sports that began in the World Games and are now regularly competed in the Olympic Games include badminton, beach volleyball, trampoline, rugby sevens, taekwondo, triathlon, and women's weightlifting.
