That should be accepted, but it's not. I've reported it, as well as others like it, but they haven't accepted this version yet.

I don't think I've ever seen Duo choose to use "too" for "también". But they do accept that answer.
"Other sports are interesting too."

When possible, the try to make the sentences have a similar structure. También can often be translated as too, but that would mean moving it to the end of the sentence. Keeping a parallel construction is important for new learners. At least, that's what I think they were thinking ;)
