Mexican Sports Commission Requests Studies To Determine Viability Of 2024 Olympic Bid

Mexico's National Sports Commission will "request technical and financial studies regarding the economic and social feasibility, as well as the country's sports and hospitality infrastructure, for a possible bid to host the 2024 Olympics," according to Fernando Damián of LA AFICION. The commission is led by former Olympic swimmer and Mexican Olympic Committee President Felipe Muñoz. During an "ordinary meeting, an agreement was reached to also request that the Secretary of Public Education and National Sports Commission immediately issue a law to establish measures to prevent acts of violence at sporting events" (LA AFICION, 3/19).
