Sunday 8 September, Buenos Aires:

World Squash Federation (WSF) President N Ramachandran, who led the Squash presentation at Sunday’s IOC Session in Buenos Aires, admitted that he was heart-broken at the decision.
“This decision is heart-breaking for the millions of Squash players around the world, particularly given the 10-year journey we have been on to join the Olympic Games Sports Programme,” said President Ramachandran.
“As the only new Olympic sport on the shortlist, we believed Squash offered something for the future and I still hope that our inclusion may still be possible.
“The feedback we have received from many IOC members for our campaign and our presentation has been very positive and I am encouraged by the vote we received . We have much to offer the Olympic Movement and I am hopeful that this  is not the end of our Olympic journey.”
