Wrestling, Squash and Baseball-Softball Await Their Fate

by Rachel Baker on August 30, 2013

Three sports were shortlisted to be the final addition to events in 2020 Olympics. September 8th is the day they find out which sport will make the appearance.

Wrestling’s seven-month stay in Olympic purgatory is almost complete.

The ancient sport will either emerge from its ultimate crisis stronger than ever – or be forced to adjust to the cruel reality of life outside of the Olympic program.

Wrestling, squash and a combined bid from baseball-softball will make their final pleas to the full IOC assembly in Buenos Aires, Argentina, which will vote on which sport gets the last spot in the 2020 Olympics on September 8.
