NPR reports that e sport received majority support in separate votes. Athletes and officials from both camps gave special presentations. Tiger Woods provided a video message. NPR says he has indicated he would play golf in the Olympics.
It should be interesting. Both of the very different sports were strongly approved. Tiger Woods says he will golf for a medal in 2016.
