IOC Presidential Candidates Make Case To Voters; Madrid Maintaining Momentum
Published July 8, 2013
MADRID MOMENTUM: The AFP reported Madrid left Lausanne "having convinced many they can be entrusted with the 2020 Summer Games." Their technical presentation to the IOC members -- who will vote on the host city in Buenos Aires on Sept. 7 -- "received universal praise." Neither Istanbul, running their most impressive bid after four previous failures, nor Tokyo, the only one of the three to have previously hosted the Games in '64, "performed disastrously and remain in contention but it was Madrid that has the momentum" (AFP, 7/5).
