Wushu – Possible Inclusion as Olympic Sport

Wushu has been included for possible inclusion as an Olympic Sport. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board meeting at the 123rd IOC session in Durban, South Africa, announced the eight sports short listed for inclusion in the 2020 Summer Olympic Games.

From all of the candidates � Climbing, Baseball, Karate, Roller Sports, Softball, Squash, Wakeboard and Wushu � only one will be included in the Games. The IOC Program Commission will be studying
intensively each sport and the battle for the single spot is going to be fierce without a doubt.
