1, it needs to have an International Federation that governs the sport, sets and enforces rules, organizes tournaments, etc.

#2, it needs to be practiced in at least 50 countries (female sports) or 75 countries (male sports)

#3, it needs to hold World Championships.

#4, it needs to be recognized by the IOC, and finally,

#5, it needs to be voted in to the games by a 2/3 majority of IOC members at the first IOC meeting following each Olympic Games.

Several basic requirements are an international controlling body, acceptance as a bona fide sport and public interest in it.

The requirements vary from country to country and sport to sport. The requirements for each sport are set by the governing body of that sport to meet the requirements as agreed to by the Olympic committee. Also, getting into the Olympics is very hard. Some events are held where world-class athletes compete against each other in order to represent their country at the Olympics. The ones who perform the best are usually the ones who go.

Because it was popular enough and fulfilled the requirements for a sport to be accepted as an olympic sport, with national competitions, national organisations and international organisation.

Pretty much the same way you enter the olympics for any sport - by competing and doing well, first at a national level, then an international level.If you manage that, then there is a chance that the Olympic Committee in your country might invite you to represent your country at the Olympics.

There are many requirements to participate in the Olympics. They vary by from nation to nation and from sport to sport.(1) Taekwondo athletes should be medal winners at an International or World event(2) Taekwondo athletes who wish to represent the United States must be citizens of the United States and hold a valid U.S. passport that will not expire for six months following the conclusion of the Olympics Games.

They can't possibly put every sport in the olympics. There may be a thousand sports around the world. For example, sumo wrestling in Japan, is a sport. And, it is NOT a sport in the olympics.

A decathlon is a ten event sport at the Olympics.

Same reason any other sport makes it into the Olympics - by fulfilling the requirements in the Olympic rules, having enough competitors, and enough media interest.
