After weeks of speculation, Wrestling has defeated bids from baseball and squash to reclaim its spot in the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo.
The sport – featured in the first modern Olympics in Athens in 1896 – had been due to end its Olympic participation at Rio 2016 following its exclusion by the International Olympic Committee in February.
Wrestling received a majority of the votes with 49, followed by a joint bid by baseball and softball getting 24 votes and squash with 22.
The IOC session ends in Buenos Aires on Tuesday with the election of a new president to replace Jacques Rogge.
