Squash searches for Olympic recognition

The stars of the game have never been able to call themselves 'Olympians', but that could all be about to change.

    The organisers of eight different non-Olympic sports are holding their collective breath this week.

    On Wednesday, the International Olympic committee will decide which of the sports will be shortlisted to appear or re-appear at the 2020 games.

    Squash is just one of the hopefuls aiming to make the cut.
