The list consists of:

  • bowling
  • karate
  • roller sports
  • sports climbing
  • squash
  • surfing
  • martial arts

The committee says that new sports should be popular among young people and “add value to the Games by engaging the Japanese population and new audiences worldwide.” The nominations will be narrowed down in August and then presented to the International Olympic Committee for a decision.
