JOINT BID PLANNED FOR '24: In Copenhagen, Ray Weaver reported Copenhagen Mayor Frank Jensen would like to see the 2024 Summer Olympics "be held jointly" by Copenhagen and Hamburg. Jensen "made his pitch last week at a conference held by the Danish-German Chamber of Commerce." Jensen: “Cooperation between the two cities is the only way that democratic states like Germany and Denmark can pull off a mega-project like the Olympic Games.” Hamburg’s city government "recently commissioned a cost/risk study regarding hosting the games," after 65% of its citizens "expressed support for the idea in a referendum held earlier this month." Berlin "has also been mentioned as a possible contender to host the Games" (COPENHAGEN POST, 5/26).
