Olympics 2020

Tokyo, Madrid and Istanbul have made the short list of cities bidding to host the 2020 Summer Olympics.

Other applicant cities, Baku in Azerbaijan and Doha in Qatar, failed to make the list.

Tokyo are the only one of the candidates to have hosted the event before and are widely seen at the front runner.

The successful candidate will be announced on Sept. 7, 2013 at the 125th IOC 'Session' in Buenos Aires.




When the kookaburra crows?

Kookaburras OLYMPIC OUTRAGE: The Aussie Mens Hockey Team are fuming that they'll have to get up at 5 in the morning to play most of their games at the London Olympics. Should the Kookaburras be upset about the early starts?

  • I hope Turkey win it will just go to prove how irrelevant the olympics are. Turkey is a democracy in name only. The theocrats run the villages. This will be a bigger disaster than Berlin in 1936.

  • I've been to all 3 cities and they are all wonderful and would go back to any of the 3 in a minute. However, I vote for Tokyo. Itis the city out of the 3 that I would go to see an olympic game. The infrastructure is already there and it is a very efficient city. Istanbul and Madrid have to spend billions to improve their infrastructure. Money that can be spent elsewhere.

  • I hope Turkey does not win it. Just not safe enough at the moment for such a big event.
