Wrestling or baseball in 2020?
Eight sports were under consideration for inclusion in the 2020 Summer Olympics, competing for a single spot. The list has been narrowed to three: wrestling, a combined baseball/softball bid and squash. The competition here is likely between the former two sports; wrestling has the weight of history on its side, while baseball and softball have perhaps the highest profile of any sport on the list. The final decision will come down in September -- until then, each sport has a chance to make its case.
