As of the 2028 Olympics Boxing, Modern Pentathlon and Weightlifting are no longer "core" sports. Their place have been taken by Climbing, Skateboarding and Surfing, who are now permanent parts of the Summer Olympics.

 

1468977465158684672?s=20There will be a "pathway" for Boxing, Modern Pentathlon and/or Weightlifting to be included as "core" sports for 2028, and of course the OC could propose them.

Damn, UPIM fucked up. Glad to see boxing and weightlifting gone. They had ample opportunity to clean up their act over the last few years.

“With regard to football, the IOC will continue to monitor the evolution of the international match calendar.” Noteworthy quote as well.

UIPM did everything right to get blacklisted. :whistle:

Ok with climbing (only in separate events version ofc), let say ok with skateboarding (atractive and quite spectacular to watch (Park)) but Surfing ??? come on, why ? Never saw more boring thing in whole my life than that thing in Tokyo...

Probably due to the WC proposal every 2 years.

 

Making surfing permanent almost excludes any inland host. For Example Toronto cannot host surfing and I'm sure other cities are in the same boat.

 

And great just what the Olympics needs... more judged sports.

 

Can't wait for @phelps response

Paris set a pretty clear precedent that the IOC will let you host surfing literally anywhere in your country without any complaints - a Toronto bid would have no problem finding a suitable natural venue somewhere in Canada.

 

And if there is no suitable venue in country and a bid isn't willing to have a venue in another country wave pools are a possibility now (even though they are very much considered a back-up option).
