Five new sports have been nominated for inclusion in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Details from FOX News Radio's Alastair Wanklyn in Tokyo:

The five sports are karate, baseball/softball, surfing, sport climbing and roller sports like skateboarding recommended for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Host Japan proposing sports that are popular here and which, it says, are youth-focused.

Baseball/softball were Olympic sports but they were axed for the London tournament. The others are new.

The International Olympic Committee will decide which ones get included just under a year from now.
