Officials from the International Olympic Committee have narrowed the list of sports they’re considering adding to the 2016 Summer Games:
The board will submit golf and rugby sevens — a faster-paced version of the standard 15-a-side game — for ratification by the full 106-member IOC assembly in Copenhagen in October.
Among the rejected sports were baseball, softball, squash, karate and something called "roller sports."
Whatever the outcome of the IOC’s final vote, one thing is clear: Hugo Chavez ain’t gonna be too pleased about this one.
