Easy, you can play competitively with a beer in one hand. This is not true for actual Olympic sports (i.e. biathlon, handball, water polo).

Agree, @Dano.  Perhaps it's just never been submitted.

One potential answer would be that it's just never been considered.

I would have to answer that not every country in the world has been exposed to a tournament level play of the game much in the same way that lawn darts or horseshoes are not Olympic sports either.  I'm not entirely sure the world would be ready for Kubb in the Olympics..I'm pretty sure they have strict rules about participating in an Olympic event while intoxicated..  :)
