New sports addedd in Olympics
Surfing, Karate, Sport climbing, Baseball/softball

In every Olympic event few new sports are being shelved in and out based upon International Olympic committee(IOC) decision. While Rio Olympics 2016 saw inclusion of Golf and Rugby seven, Tokyo Olympics 2020 will introduce few more new sports. Breakdown of Zika Virus, cunctation and massive overrun on construction, debris among the waterways were the major setbacks experienced during Rio Olympics 2016 just before 50 days of its commencement. Similarly, during this Olympic season when only 47 days are remaining the world is battling through fourth wave of COVID-19. Let’s keep our hopes high for the onset of Olympics 2020.
