Softball Loses By One

Softball lost its chances of staying in the 2012 Olympics by one vote, according to the results of last month's secret IOC ballot.

It received 52 votes in favour and 52 against, with one abstention, in the July 8 vote of the International Olympic Committee in Singapore.

It needed 53 votes to stay.

Softball will be played at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and then can apply in 2009 for reinstatement at the 2016 Games.
