Tokyo recommends five more sports for 2020 Games

September 28, 2015

Just announced this morning (Sept 28) – Five additional sports — baseball/softball, karate, skateboarding, sports climbing and surfing — have been recommended by the organizers of the Tokyo Olympics for inclusion at the 2020 Summer Games.



Under the proposal, a total of 18 new medal events, nine each for men and women, would be contested by an extra 474 athletes at the Games.

Under new rules, Olympic host cities can hand-pick sports they want to see contested at the Games, although the final decision rests with the International Olympic Committee, which will vote on the 2020 recommendations next August.
