New sports for Olympics?

November 13, 2008

Baseball, golf, karate, roller sports, rugby, softball and squash each will make their initial case for joining the Olympics when National Federation leaders meet the IOC Programme Commission in Lausanne on Nov 14th. Baseball and softball–voted out at the 2005 IOC Session in Singapore–are trying to return to the Olympic programme.

There are currently 26 sports for 2012; two more will be added at the 121st IOC Session in Copenhagen next October.
