I think the answer is simple. Cricket, football, rugby were invented here and have grown a large following and great popularity over 150 years. Basketball is seen as an "American" sport, volleyball was also invented in America. Athletics is just a really simple set of sports when you think about it and anyone can give it a go, whatever their background which I think is a major reason for its popularity and global appeal.

Could it be because they weren't invented in Britain? A google search tells me they were both invented in Massachusetts.
Never crossed my mind that volleyball was an American invention. I thought that it was China or Japan but never searched about it.
