Olympics: A 28-sport cap dropped

A 28-sport cap has been dropped for future Olympic Games as part of a 40-point action plan to revamp the sporting showpiece.
Potential hosts will also find it easier and cheaper to bid under the "Olympic Agenda 2020" reforms.
The changes are being voted on by the International Olympic Committee over two days at a meeting in Monaco. The IOC has also agreed to allow future events to be held outside the host country or city.The dropping of a 28-sport limit will see the Games instead restricted to 10,500 athletes and 310 events.The event-based focus could allow more sports to join the Olympic programme, the IOC meeting was told.
