Jonah on board sevens Olympic bandwagon

6:53 am on 1 October 2009

Jonah Lomu's joined the International Rugby Board's team campaigning for rugby sevens' inclusion in the 2016 Olympic Games.

The former All Black and New Zealand sevens star will travel to the Danish capital Copenhagen ahead of the decisive vote on October 9th to determine the sports that will be added to the 2016 Olympic Games programme.

Sevens, along with golf, was recommended for inclusion by the IOC Executive Board in August and the two sports now face separate votes by the full 106 IOC membership with a straight majority required.
