IOC Board Backs Golf, Rugby for 2016 Olympics; Women’s Boxing in for 2012

from Associated Press

BERLIN – International Olympic leaders are recommending golf and rugby for inclusion in the 2016 Summer Games while women’s boxing will be on the program in London in 2012.

The International Olympic Committee executive board selected golf and rugby from a list of seven proposed sports. Failing to make the cut were baseball, softball, squash, karate and roller sports.

The board will submit golf and rugby for ratification by the full 106-member IOC assembly in Copenhagen in October.
