After having elected Tokyo as the host city of the 2020 Olympic Games, the IOC Session is set to make another major decision on Sunday by determining the composition of the 2020 Olympic programme.

Two votes are scheduled – the first on the 25 core sports for the 2020 Olympic programme and the second on the possible inclusion of an additional sport for the 2020 and 2024 editions of the Games, both based on proposals by the IOC Executive Board (EB). Baseball/softball, squash and wrestling* were shortlisted for selection by the Session in May following an extensive evaluation by the Olympic Programme Commission.

The Session is being broadcast live on www.olympic.org. The decision on the core sports is expected at around 10.15 a.m., while the vote on the possible inclusion of an additional sport is scheduled for noon. All three sports will deliver 20-minute presentations to the IOC membership followed by 10-minute Q&A sessions ahead of the vote.

The results will be announced in the Session room directly after each vote.
