World Squash Federation
Official Release
May 2008 Instant Update
Received June 5, 2008

Following the IOC announcement that Squash has been included on the shortlist of sports under consideration for the 2016 Olympic Games, the WSF organised an Olympic Strategic Planning Session during last month's ManCom meeting schedule in Kuala Lumpur.

Members of ManCom were also joined WSF Patron and IOC Member Tunku Imran and Emeritus President Susie Simcock.

Among the issues discussed were:
- The benefits of Squash's inclusion in the Games, both from the WSF and the Olympic movement's points of view
- The Review Process timeline from now until the Copenhagen meeting decision date in October 2009
- Lobbying
- The role of Media & PR
- Communication of the sport's Development & Growth
- Major event presentation
- Market Intelligence
- Operational plan

"After the huge disappointment of so narrowly missing out on inclusion in the 2102 Games in London, we are determined to present an irresistible case for Squash being added to the 2016 Olympic Games programme," said WSF President Jahangir Khan. "This is the sport's number one focus over the coming year."
