Denver - The seven sports vying for inclusion in the 2016 Summer Games will know in August if they made the short list.

International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge says the executive board will analyse the seven applicant sports and then propose two at an IOC meeting in Berlin this summer. In the running are golf, rugby Sevens, baseball, karate, roller speedskating, softball and squash.

Rogge said the committee would review the sports at a board meeting on August 13 before the opening ceremonies at the world athletics championships in mid-August.

The IOC will choose a maximum of two new sports for 2016 when it meets in Copenhagen in October.
