It was at one point: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bowling_at_the_Summer_Olympics

According to that, the main issue is cost, and that bowling lacks inexpensive or easy access for youth in the underdeveloped world to acquire skill and proficiency.

Bowling would actually be a good addition to the Olympics apart from these limitations Undecided

Bowling is definitely a sport: there's competition and it's physical. As to why it's not included in the olympics, could be because it's a 1st world type of sport; less likely to see this is Africa where people are struggling to get by. I think it should be a sporting event, for sure.

You can lobby for it, but I think they've already made their decision...

The bowling industry lobbied long and hard for bowling to be recognized as a worthy demonstration sport for future Games, but the outcome was not successful. A negative factor is that bowling lacks inexpensive or easy access for youth in the underdeveloped world to acquire skill and proficiency.[1] However, after its first demonstration appearance five years earlier at the Americas-exclusive 1983 Pan American Games[2] in a similar manner to how it was accepted at the 1988 Seoul Games, for the first time anywhere, on August 2, 1991 in Havana, Cuba, the tenpin bowling sport earned full "medal status" in an international multisport competition: the eleventh competition of the Pan American Games, at which all the nations of the Americas compete every four years. The medal-level competition has been held at every Pan American Games since then, and is a part of the 2019 Games to be held in Lima, Peru.

Because there is no measurable difference in success. Jumping and athletics are measured through speed or style or execution.
Bowling could only reliably be measured in how many strikes you get in a row, and if you bowl for 2 years, you can put your mind to it and only get strikes.
I suppose you could measure ball velocity, but eventually you're gonna have 30 m/s projectiles flying down a bowling lane wrecking whatever stands in its way.
