The unique exhibition showcases the leading role that Rugby Union has played in the birth of the modern Olympic movement. From Pierre de Coubertin’s formative experiences at Rugby School, the introduction to wheelchair rugby in the Paralympic games and Fiji’s first Olympic gold medal. It spans the history of rugby at the Olympics in both the XVs, Sevens, men’s and women’s game and looks ahead to the upcoming XXXII Olympiad in Tokyo.
