SORRY, KORFBALL: The eight sports making the cut for consideration for the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics are baseball/softball, squash, karate, surfing, roller sports, sport climbing, wushu, and squash.
"The sports that applied but failed to make the cut were: air sports, American football, bowls, bridge, chess, dance sport, floorball, flying disc, korfball, netball, orienteering, polo, racquetball, sumo, tug of war, underwater sports, waterski and wakeboard."
Damn. I wanted Olympic tug-of-war, but only if it were contested by athletes who had medaled in other disciplines earlier in the competition. As for underwater sports, only if it looks like this.
