Madrid to Re-Enter Bidding for the Olympics

Posted on 23 February 2010 by admin

The Mayor of Madrid has announced that the capital will once again present to the Olympic Committee as a venue, but didn’t clarify which year.

“Now” he said, ” we have to study if the most intelligent thing is to re-present the candidacy for 2020, or for 2024.”

The mayor, Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón, believes in the capital’s bid for the Olympic Games, saying ” third time lucky” although still not decided for which year to bid.

In an interview with TVE, Spanish television, the mayor has guaranteed that “Madrid will be an Olympic city” but believes that he shouldn’t risk a third and fourth possibility.

After not being chosen for 2012, which London won, or 2016, won by Rio de Janeiro, they will only bid for a third time.

Now comes the need to study which is the most intelligent choice, 2020 or 2024.

Although as there is plenty of time, he considers it should be decided by whoever is elected in the local elections of May 2011.
