I think basketball should have its own group, just like Tokyo organizers characterized it. Also, these are Summer Olympic sports, so maybe you'd like to add Winter Sports in this quiz or change the title and description to mention Summer Olympics?

Oh, forgot one thing. I tried soccer and it wasn't accepted. Can you add the type-in? Thanks

Good points! I've added winter sports as well now and accepted that type-in. I'm not sure what you mean about basketball though?

Take Canoe, for example. There's a row for the sport "group" and one for each type of canoeing. I wonder whether basketball and volleyball should be formatted the same way in the quiz. Oh yeah, and I'd love if you could make suggestions for my quiz: https://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/147055/2020-summer-olympic-events/

Decathlon comes under athletics, no?

Architecture at the Olympics is a quality bit of obscure trivia! But not listed as part of the Games on the IOC web page, so not included.

Pentathlon why not accepted? And also field hockey is missing.

Pentathlon is an event within the sport of athletics, not a sport in its own right. Hockey is there, listed just as "hockey" and not "field hockey".

Aren't synchronized swimming and artistic swimming the same thing?

I thought there was some actual distinction, but on re-checking, yes, it seems the discipline was just renamed in 2017.
