Rogge Finds Sport Presentations 'Interesting and Informative'

IOC president Jacques Rogge said all seven sports vying for inclusion in the 2016 Olympics made 'interesting and informative presentations.'

He said they all had 'something to offer' but that the choice will depend on which sports are 'the best for the Olympic programme.'

The IOC said the presentations were part of a broader effort to strengthen the Olympic programme and improve the evaluation process.

There is a limit of 28 sports in the Olympics and the 2012 Olympics will have 26, leaving two slots open for 2016.
