2020 Olympic: Japan Proposes 5 Additional Sports

TokyoThe Tokyo Olympic Organising Committee has recommended the inclusion of five additional sports to the 2020 Olympic games.

The games are baseball-softball, karate, surfing, sport climbing and skateboarding.
The committee disclosed the development on Monday, stating that the five games, if accepted by the International Olympic Committee, would add 18 competitions and 474 athletes to the programme for the 2020 summer Olympic Games

The committee made the recommendation from a choice of eight sports where bowling, squash and wushu did not make the cut.
The IOC will make a final decision on including the sports for 2020 next August in Rio de Janeiro, prior to the 2016 Games.
