TOKYO OFFICIAL WANTS BACK IN: Tokyo Gov. Shintaro Ishihara Friday said that he wants the city to bid for the '20 Games. At a speech during a regular session of the Japanese capital's metropolitan assembly, Ishihara said, "I want this to be considered. I hope Japan will be united in this effort." Ishihara was the "driving force behind Tokyo's failed bid" to host the '16 Games (AP, 6/17). Ishihara argued that the '20 Games could be "a boost to Japan's quake and tsunami recovery," suggesting that "rebuilt disaster zones could hold some events" (AFP, 6/17).
