Bowling's bid for Tokyo 2020 inclusion

24th April, London: Twenty-six International Federations submitted applications for inclusion as additional events in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games as revealed at a press conference following a Tokyo 2020 Executive Board meeting in Tokyo.


The Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee has received applications from 26 IOC-recognised International Federations (IFs) proposing events to be considered for inclusion at the Games of the XXXII Olympiad (Tokyo 2020). The applicant IFs were revealed at a press conference following a Tokyo 2020 Executive Board meeting today.

The application process for additional event(s) to be included at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games was opened on 8 May 2015, and the IOC-recognised IFs were required to return completed applications by 8 June 2015.

The Tokyo 2020 Additional Event Programme Panel will now examine each application and a shortlist will be announced on 22 June 2015. The second phase of the application process will then commence.



Meeting with the international federations


Review of the applications will be based on the following key principles:
The additional event(s) will serve as a driving force to promote the Olympic Movement and its values, with a focus on youth appeal
The additional event(s) will add value to the Games by engaging the Japanese population and new audiences worldwide, reflecting the Tokyo 2020 Games vision
The selection procedure will be open and fair


Phase II will include the submission of further details from the shortlisted IFs and a presentation to the Additional Event Programme Panel will take place in Tokyo.

The Additional Event Programme Panel will propose its recommendations to the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee, which will make a final decision on the successful event(s) to be proposed to the IOC.

The final decision, in line with the Olympic Charter, will be made by the 129th IOC Session in Rio in August 2016.
