  The Sydney 2000 Pictograms:

There will be 28 sports and 19 associated disciplines at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
The 34 sporting pictograms represent 24 of these sports and ten of the disciplines.

The pictograms have been specially designed for the Sydney Olympic Games to be used as a directional aid to spectators, athletes and officials during the days of competition in 2000. This is why some disciplines - rather than their controlling sport - have separate pictograms if they are being contested at different times or at different venues.

For ease of understanding, the 28 sports are:
aquatics, archery, athletics, badminton, baseball, basketball, boxing, canoe/kayak, cycling equestrian, fencing, football, gymnastics, handball, hockey, judo, modern pentathlon, rowing, sailing shooting, softball, table tennis, taekwondo, tennis, triathlon, volleyball, weightlifting, wrestling.

Seven of these sports have disciplines, which are separate competitions contested under the jurisdiction of a specific sport. The seven sports and their disciplines are:

Aquatics: four disciplines - diving, swimming, synchronized swimming and water polo.

Canoe/kayak: two disciplines - slalom and sprint.

Cycling: three disciplines: road, track and mountain bike.

Equestrian: three disciplines - dressage, jumping and three-day event.

Gymnastics: three disciplines - artistic, rhythmic and trampolining.

Volleyball: two disciplines - volleyball and beach volleyball (nb: volleyball discipline is played indoors. The sport and the discipline share the same name).

Wrestling: two disciplines - freestyle and Greco-Roman.
