NOTE:  In this theme the sport of rugby has been included in the list of events/games.  Although not currently an Olympic sport, it was felt that the word could be used anyway to cover a range of sports practised by the children.  Rugby was part of the Olympics until 1924 when it was dropped by the International Olympic Committee.  In 2009 the IOC voted to include rugby in the 2016 summer Olympics.
