IOC Set To Cut One Sport From Olympic Program At Exec Board Meeting
Published February 12, 2013
POSSIBLE CUTS: The PA's Mark Staniforth reported table tennis "could be another candidate due to the continued dominance of the sport by the Chinese," who have won 24 of 28 available Gold Medals since the sport was first introduced to the Olympics in '88. Badminton is "set to escape censure after taking swift action against those implicated in the match-fixing affair which blighted" its London 2012 program. Wrestling has "also been mentioned as a possible casualty" (PA, 2/11).
