CAUTIOUS CONFIDENCE: The EFE reported former Spanish Secretary of State for Sport Jaime Lissavetzky, who supported previous Madrid Olympic bids, believes that "hosting the Games is within reach for the Madrid 2020 bid." Lissavetsky: "Having it within reach does not mean we have it. No one can say it or joke about it because the three candidates are very similar and they all think the same thing." Lissavetsky "believes that in the final sprint it is best not to look back, believe in the possibilities and block out the rest" (EFE, 8/11).
