Archery seeks mixed team event for Tokyo Olympics
LONDON (AP) — Archery is proposing the inclusion of a mixed team event at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The world archery federation’s executive board approved the recommendation at a meeting in Nottingham, England, over the weekend.
The move follows the International Olympic Committee’s adoption of a more flexible, “events-based” sports program.
World Archery says it will submit a proposal for a mixed team event to the IOC.
A mixed team archery competition already features at the Youth Olympics and World Games.
