Long a feature of themed medieval fairs in the grounds of ancient castles, jousting deserves to be recognized as a "western martial art" and added to the roster of Olympic events, said professional jouster Dominic Sewell.It would take years, however, for jousting to be considered for inclusion in the summer games.First it would have to be recognized as an Olympic sport and then scrutinized for a period of at least seven years. While no new sports have been added for Rio, baseball and softball, karate, sport climbing, skateboarding and surfing have been recommended for inclusion at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
