2020 Olympics Host: Three Cities Go For The Gold

OlympicsToday, Istanbul, Madrid and Tokyo will attempt to convince the International Olympic Committee that they are the city who should be given the right to host the 2020 Summer Games. Who can blame them? It’s good for the economy; driving tourists and international publicity.

To give you an idea of past cases, in 2005 David Beckham along with London school children said that if the British capital could host, it would “Inspire a Generation.” Four years later, Rio de Janeiro won the hosting reigns.

“Being chosen as a host city is a gold medal,” Mike Lee, a veteran of three successful Olympic bid campaigns, told CNN. “Not all cities can host them, not all countries have the economic strength to be able to do it.”
