BEIJING, China 12 September 2015 - President of the International Mind Sport Association Mr. Jose Damiani, during a presentation of the organization, discussed the addition of mahjong under the competitive match format for the next World Mind Sports Games to be hosted in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The World Mind Sports Games (WMSG) is a quadrennial multi-sport event created by the International Mind Sports Association (IMSA) as a "stepping stone on the path of introducing a third kind of Olympic Games [after the Summer and the Winter Olympics]". The Games are considered to be very prestigious and are the equivalent of the Olympics for bridge, chess, go, and draughts [checkers].
