Which of these sports should be included for the 2020 Olympics?

Here are the archived results from a poll that ran on this site in 2013. In September 2013, the IOC voted on which sport to add to the Olympic Games program for 2020 and 2024. There were initially eight sports in the running for inclusion on the program, but in May 2013 the IOC cut karate, roller sports, sport climbing, wakeboarding and wushu from this list, leaving baseball-softball, squash and wrestling on the shortlist.

We ran a poll for a short time on this site to select which of the three (baseball-softball, squash and wrestling) should be selected.

The announcement of which of these sports will appear at the Olympic Games in 2020 took place on 8th September in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The favorite wrestling got the nod. This was also the opinion of the visitors to this site. Out of 73 votes, wrestling was also the top pick.

There is a new poll about which sports should be added to the Olympics.

wrestling 35 48%
baseball / softball 21 29%
squash 17 23%
