You’re in! Baseball/softball, 4 other sports make Tokyo cut (Yahoo Sports)
Baseball and softball are returning to the Olympics in 2020, while skateboarding, surfing, karate and sport climbing are joining the games for the first time. The IOC approved the addition of the sports Wednesday for the Tokyo Games, calling it an ”innovative” mix of traditional and youth-oriented events that will attract Japanese and global fans. The five, including a combined baseball-softball bid, were put forward for inclusion last year by Tokyo organizers.
