2020 Olympic venue to be announced tomorrow

INTERNATIONAL Olympic Committee members have plenty to decide when they meet in Buenos Aires this weekend.

They will choose the host city of the 2020 Games, elect a new president to succeed Jacques Rogge, and select one sport to add to the 2020 program.

It's a three-way contest between Tokyo, Madrid and Istanbul to host the Games.

Wrestling, which has featured in every Olympics since 1900 before being controversially dropped for Rio, is competing against squash and a combined baseball-softball bid to complete the sporting line-up.
