Wrestling starts its comeback to the 2020 Olympics

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia - Wrestling could be making an Olympic comeback. The Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee is recommending wrestling, baseball/softball and squash for possible inclusion for the 2020 Summer Games.

The three sports were selected by secret ballot and are to be proposed to the 125th IOC Session in September for possible inclusion as an additional sport.

Wrestling was cut from the list of core sports by the IOC board in February. The 2020 Olympics will be held in either Madrid, Spain; Istanbul, Turkey or Tokyo, Japan.
