‘Everyone with Madrid 2020’

Published on 18 March 2013 at 12:16


A delegation from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has begun a four-day visit to Madrid to evaluate the city’s suitability to host the 2020 Olympics.
Following unsuccessful bids to host the 2012 and 2016 events, this is the third time the Spanish capital has applied to host the games. Authorities are hoping that a winning bid will give a much needed boost to the region and the country in a time of economic crisis.
The IOC will announce which city has been selected to host the 2020 Olympics on September 7. Madrid’s main rivals are Tokyo and Istanbul.
