Update: It’s Golf and rugby in for 2016

It’s the 13th of August, and today’s the day when the IOC executive board decides which two among the seven 2016 sport hopefuls will have a chance to join the Olympic program.

The 2 sports that make it to the shortlist will then be put forward to the IOC  members for voting in Copenhagen in October 2009.

Squash is bidding for a place in the Olympic Games 2016 against six other sports: baseball, golf, karate, roller sports, rugby sevens and softball.

Join us for the live webcast of the IOC Press Conference from Berlin, Germany at 15:00 GMT +1 here.

    No Squash. Golf and Rugby through to the next stage. I am not amused.
