Which of these 8 sports should be included into the Olympics?

Wrestling was dropped from the core sports list in early 2013, and joined seven other sports on a shortlist for inclusion: roller sports, karate, softball & baseball (joint bid), squash, sport climbing, wakeboard and wushu. The poll asked which sport you thought should be the next to get the nod?
