Olympics: Wrestling, baseball/softball, squash shortlisted for inclusion in 2020 Games

ST. PETERSBURG (AP) - Wrestling, squash and baseball/softball have made the International Olympic Committee shortlist for inclusion in the 2020 Games.

Three months after being dropped from the 2020 programme, wrestling took a big step toward keeping its Olympic status.

Eliminated from contention on Wednesday were five sports - karate, roller sports, sport climbing, skateboarding and the Chinese martial art of wushu.

The IOC executive board will submit wrestling, squash and baseball/softball to the full IOC assembly for a final decision on Sept 8 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
