(AP) The three sports vying for inclusion in the 2020 Olympics are making their final presentations to the IOC.

Wrestling, squash and a combined baseball-softball bid are competing for a single spot on the program.

Wrestling, which was dropped from the list of core sports in February, is widely favored to win back its place in a secret vote later Sunday by the International Olympic Committee.

The IOC rejected a proposal by Canadian member Dick Pound to postpone a decision for five months to allow a new sport to get in. The members then approved the list of 25 core sports to allow the vote to go ahead.
