The announcement of the unanimous IOC Executive Board recommendation to include baseball/softball, skateboarding, sports climbing, surfing and karate to feature at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics has been welcomed with great satisfaction by ARISF President Dr. Raffaele Chiulli.

All five Sports are ARISF Members and the organisation assembling 35 International Federations recognised by the International Olympic Committee is proud of contributing actively to achieving the objectives of the Olympic Agenda 2020.

“It is an honour for ARISF to play a crucial role within the Olympic Movement and to see the fruits of our continued efforts in working closely with the IOC which allowed us to achieve such an extraordinary result” said Dr. Raffaele Chiulli.
