Olympic Notes: Indian Olympic Association Calls Off 2019 Asian Games Bid

The Indian Olympic Association has "called off its pursuit to bid for the 2019 Asian Games." The IOA officials were "waiting for an appointment with PM Narendra Modi in a last-ditch attempt to get the government's nod to place a serious bid." However, the association "failed to get an audience with the PM." IOA Secretary General Rajeev Mehta said, "It is all over as far as the bid for the 2019 Asian Games is concerned" (INDIAN EXPRESS, 7/7). ... The World Baseball Softball Confederation was "issued a warning Tuesday" by the IOC after an investigation into a May incident "in Tunisia involving Peter Kurz, the head of the Israeli Baseball Association." Kurz was requested "not to display the Israeli flag or name plate" at the WBSC congress (SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, 7/8).
