    The Tokyo 2020 bid committee, "fueled by the twin catalysts of top-down organizational enthusiasm and strong financial backing," is seen by many "as the clear favorite to be awarded the 2020 Summer Olympics," according to Ed Odeven of SPORTS ON EARTH. Madrid and Istanbul "are the other two finalists." Madrid's bid "is impacted by Spain's severe economic problems," like 27% unemployment. The London Guardian reported Friday that Spain's under-25 unemployment "now stands at an alarming 56.1 percent, second in the European Union to Greece's 62.9."
