New data has revealed which Olympic sports are the most popular across the UK, with trampolining coming out on top, followed by mountain biking, skateboarding, and fencing.
Hockey came out in the top half of the ranking, sitting in 19th position ahead of table tennis, diving, archery and judo.
Better, the UK’s largest charitable social enterprise, with facilities offering 95% of all the Olympic sports, analysed search popularity for every sport in the current Olympics in Tokyo to discover which ones have the country most excited.
The ranking looks outside of the classic ‘big four’ sports of football, boxing, golf, and rugby, seeking instead to explore the less mainstream sports associated with the huge international sporting tournament being held in Japan this year.
Trampolining, mountain biking and skateboarding claim the top three positions with an average search volume of over 500,000 each month between them.
Hockey had 18,100 searches and sat behind the likes of sailing, karate and equestrian.
