There will be new sports, like karate, and new events, like basketball played three against three, with one<br />hoop — kind of like playground ball with Olympic medals at stake, but most likely without chain-link nets.<br />There will be a 4-x-400-meter mixed relay in track<br />and field, in which some of the world’s fastest men may run head-to-head against some of the world’s fastest women, and a mixed medley in swimming, which will offer the same in the water.<br />In all, places for 64 weight lifters were cut, part of a series of bookkeeping adjustments<br />that will make room for the new events while still shrinking the overall field of athletes.<br />Zielinski, who obviously didn’t win a medal for his ability to learn from other’s mistakes,<br />was kicked out of the 2016 Rio Games when one of his own tests came back positive.<br />The International Olympic Committee announced big changes to the Olympic sports menu for the 2020 Tokyo Games on Friday,<br />and it’s not too early to get excited about some of them.<br />In Tokyo, for the first time, four more Olympic sports — canoeing, rowing, shooting<br />and weight lifting — will have the same number of events for women as they do for men.<br />The persistent black eyes had left Olympic officials with little choice<br />but to act to clean up weight lifting and track, or at least to impose consequences for two international sports federations that had repeatedly failed to police their own.
