Barcelona Prepares Bid To Host '22 Winter Olympics If Madrid Loses Out On '20
Published July 31, 2013
MADRID REPRESENTATION: In Madrid, Matilla & Jiménez reported the Madrid 2020 Olympic bid is working to finalize its list of the 24 athletes that will represent the candidacy in Buenos Aires on Sept. 7, when the 2020 Olympic site will be announced. The objective is "not to fill the area with the biggest names, but with complementary pieces that will truly lobby and scrape votes together." One athlete participating will be Spanish Basketball League (ACB) player Felipe Reyes. Few athletes "represent the values of sport better than Reyes." One athlete forced to "unexpectedly cancel the trip to Buenos Aires is golfer Chema Olazábal," who will be playing in a tournament in Switzerland (AS, 7/30).
