USOC Expected To Study Options For Future Games Bid
Published June 25, 2012
TRY AND TRY AGAIN: REUTERS' Regan Doherty reported that Qatar will bid to host the 2024 summer Olympics despite missing out on bids for the 2016 and 2020 Games. Qatar Olympic Committee General Secretary Saoud bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said, "We have tried it twice, and we will continue. It's not something we will give up -- it's part of our vision to make Qatar a centre for sport." Qatar had proposed holding the 2020 Olympics in October to avoid the Gulf Arab state's searing summer heat (REUTERS, 6/24).
