International Olympic Committee to Decide New Games for 2020 Olympics in Buenos Aires

Olympic rings in London

The IOC has a tough decision to make, they are going to be deciding which games will be added to the roster for the 2020 Olympics which are to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Are there any events you believe should be on the roster but aren't?

The International Olympic Committee's executive board has agreed that wrestling, squash and baseball/softball will be on a shortlist of sports to be considered for inclusion in the sports programme for the 2020 Olympic Games.

The board selected the three sports by secret ballot from a shortlist of eight which also included karate, roller sports, sport climbing, wakeboarding and wushu.

The full IOC membership will vote on which of the three sports to add to the programme of the Games in Buenos Aires from September 7-10.

The IOC executive board vote followed 30-minute presentations by each international federation and an extensive evaluation by the Olympic programme commission to determine their potential added value to the Games.
