August 13, 2009

Stephanie Streeter, Chief Executive Officer, U.S. Olympic Committee

The U.S. Olympic Committee would  like to offer its congratulations to the sports of Golf and Rugby which were recommended by the IOC’s Executive Board to go before the IOC’s full membership vote in October for inclusion into the 2016 Olympic Games.   We also would like to reach out to our Olympic Family sports of Baseball, Softball, Karate, Roller Sports and Squash to praise the quality efforts each put forth in this process.  They are great sports and I would hope each one of them would keep up their efforts to gain status as an Olympic sport. ”
