The World Karate Federation (WKF) officially launched its third in a row bid to be part of the Olympic Program at the SportAccord Convention in Québec. 

Karate is up against seven other sports – baseball, softball, squash, wushu, wakeboarding, roller skating and climbing – for inclusion in the 2020 Olympic Games.
WFK President since 1998 Antonio Espinós, believes that karate is ready to be admitted onto the Olympic programme for the first time.
