Reason Why Squash is Not in Olympic

Which sports will be in the Olympics are determined by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Factors to consider include whether it is widely practiced around the world. Many sports are in and out of Olympics since the Games started.
The 2012 Summer Olympics in London have 26 sports and two additional sports will be added to the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

One sport, can further divided into several disciplines, sometimes being commonly refereed to separate sports. For example Aquatics has five disciplines, 1) Swimming, 2) synchronized swimming, 3) Diving, 4) water polo, 5) open water swimming

A Discipline can further divided into several events, and each event a gold medal is actually awarded.

The two sports that will be added into the 2016 Olympics are Golf and Ruby Seven.

Bowling, Squash, Snooker, Karate, etc will not be in the 2016 Games.

Why Squash is Not in Olympics?
The committees are mostly concerned about the difficulties in televising the sport. Camera angles are difficult and hard for audience to see the ball. Also, the argument between referee and players.

The Squash Committee has made some changes and hopefully the sport will be in the 2020 Olympics games.

1) Glass Floors and wall
2) New scoring system
3) Extra referees
4) Video replays inside venue

Now that with High Definition (HD) camera/ TV, it overcomes the concern that TV viewers unable to see the ball.

With World Champion Nicol David from Malaysia, I think most Malaysian will want Squash to be in the Olympic Games.

I want to say that Datuk Lee Chong Wei did a very good job, so close. I think we should not have the mentality that we can only win our first Olympic Gold Metal via Squash. With so many countries managed to do it, I think Malaysia Boleh.
