My question is about the recommendations/suggestions/demands that come from the IOC, but what exactly does that mean? Is this the same committee that voted to eliminate wrestling?
Is there a special group of bureaucrats that is making suggestions to each sport on how to appease the IOC?
But doesn't every nation get one vote in September to decide what sport to add to the 2020 games?
Is it one vote per nation? I can't see any other way to make it fair, but at the same time countries like India and China with billions of people and countries like the US, Russia, Japan, Germany Etc. with great sports program get the same number of votes as a tiny country with zero Olympic level athletes.

If FILA refuses to drop weights will that effect how countries vote? I would almost like FILA to take that gamble.
