Title: Climbing is one move closer to the Olympics
Type: Climbing
System Date: 
The organizing committee for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games has recommended that climbing be included in the 2020 Games in Japan. Climbing is joined by skateboarding, surfing, baseball/softball, and karate among the sports that the organizers of Tokyo 2020 hope to add to the Tokyo Summer Olympics.
The recommendation narrows the field from eight sports being considered. The International Olympic Committee will make a final decision in August 2016.
The International Federation of Sport Climbing under a new program allows the host country to propose sports with broad local and international appeal.
