WSF Backs IOC Plan On Tokyo 2020 Sports Decision Timing

SP_3763World Squash Federation President N. Ramachandran has backed the recent announcement by the International Olympic Committee to delay the decision regarding adding new sports to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games programme until next year.

“The World Squash Federation fully supports the decision by Mr John Coates, Chairman of the IOC Co-ordination Committee, to increase the time needed to complete the evaluation of the possible sport/sports that may be included in Tokyo,” said the WSF President.

“We have made it clear in our presentations that, as a potential new candidate for inclusion, Squash is ready – but we also know that if our efforts over the years are eventually successful, the extra time will be nothing!

“It has been my privilege to meet the hosts of what will be an outstanding Games in Tokyo, so time is less important than the knowledge that the flame of hope is still burning for Squash.”
