Paragliding (only by the looks of it) may have made it. Stay tuned! Smile
- Probably Paragliding Accuracy (which Canada & the USA has yet to glom onto) ... and / or Paragliding Aerobatics.)

Subject: Paragliding: an Olympic sport?

On request from the Organising Committee of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, FAI has selected Paragliding as a potential additional event.
FAI, CIVL, the Japan Aeronautic Association and the Japan Hang and Paragliding Federation have worked on a proposal.

By the end of September, we will know if our sport is in the “short list”.
The International Olympic Committee will then choose from it.
