Wrestling for Olympic inclusion

As sport makes shortlist for 2020 Games, young wrestlers training in Moscow dream of becoming a medallist.

    Wrestling is among the sports which have made the International Olympic Committee shortlist for potential inclusion in the 2020 Games.

    It is the only one of the final four sports being considered to have previously been dropped from the Olympic programme, with baseball, softball and squash all hoping to be included for the first time.

    The shortlist results were welcomed at a training centre in Moscow which produces Russian stars of the sport, with hopes boosted that some of the young sportsmen could win a medal in seven years' time.
