Olympics organizers in Japan have suggested five new sports for the 2020 games, which are being hosted by Tokyo, according to Fox News.

New events have also been proposed for the Olympics by the organizers. Suggested new sports include surfing, skateboarding, baseball and softball. The International Olympic Committee will receive the official recommendation for the new events and make a decision regarding including them by August 2016.

"This package of events represents both traditional and emerging, youth-focused events, all of which are popular both in Japan and internationally," the organizing committee said, Fox News reported.

New recommendations are possible thanks to recent changes to the Olympics. The committee got rid of a 28-sport limit for the Olympic Games in December 2014. The new cap is 10,500 athletes and 310 medal-earning events, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The addition of new sports in the 2020 Olympics has fired up the athletic community. Baseball and softball are popular in Japan and in the United States. Many U.S. athletes are excited about the possibility.

"You get someone like a Lauren Hager from Florida that can throw a phenomenal game, and hit the game-winning run, hit a ball 50 feet over the fence," said Laura Berg, coach at Oregon State and assistant for the U.S. National team, accoding to USA Today Sports.
