Herald Sun: Squash vies against wrestling for Olympics 2020 inclusion

 

THE head of squash's governing body says he doesn't consider wrestling a "big threat" as eight sports fight for a single place on the program of the 2020 Olympics.

World Squash President N. Ramachandran tells The Associated Press he is confident his sport can win its bid for inclusion despite the high-profile support wrestling has received since being cut from the list of core sports last month by the IOC executive board.

Ramachandran says "everybody knew one sport was going to get dropped" and "my job is to promote my sport and that's what I'm doing."

Squash and wrestling are among the sports that will make presentations to the IOC board next month in St Petersburg, Russia. The others are a combined baseball-softball bid, roller sports, sport climbing, wakeboarding, and the martial arts of karate and wushu.

The board will select one or more to submit for consideration to the IOC general assembly in Buenos Aires in September.
