ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) - Wrestling, squash and baseball-softball have made the IOC short list for inclusion in the 2020 Olympics.

Three months after being dropped from the 2020 program, wrestling took a big step toward keeping its Olympic status.

Eliminated from contention Wednesday were five sports - karate, roller sports, sport climbing, skateboarding and the Chinese martial art of wushu.

The IOC executive board will submit wrestling, squash and baseball-softball to the full IOC assembly for a final decision on Sept. 8 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
