    Baseball/Softball, Sport Climbing, Surfing, Karate, Skateboarding At Tokyo 2020 - BBC
    http://www.bbc.com/sport/olympics/36968070
    Skateboarding, surfing and climbing are among five new sports confirmed for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Karate and baseball/softball have also been added by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

    The five extra sports, which do not replace any of the 28 already on the Tokyo schedule, will include 18 events and involve hundreds of athletes. Baseball and softball featured separately between 1992 and 2008, but made a joint bid to be readmitted. None of the other sports have been included before, though surf lifesaving was a demonstration sport at the Paris Games in 1900.

    The five sports were all recommended by Tokyo organisers in July and unanimously backed by the executive board of the IOC, which subsequently described them as "a dynamic and exciting package" ahead of this final confirmation at the 129th IOC session on Wednesday.

    The IOC said it hopes the "innovative" move will draw in new audiences by focusing inclusions on youth-oriented sports. "We want to take sport to the youth," said IOC president Thomas Bach.
