PostHeaderIcon ‘India can host 2020 Olympics’

The organising committee for the 2012 London Olympics today put its weight behind India’s aspirations for hosting the mega event in 2020.

The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) has expressed its willingness to bid for the Games and the host city will be named in 2013.

London Olympics organising committee chairman Mr Sebastian Coe said if Delhi bids to host the mega event, there was a good chance it might get it and the successful staging of the 2010 Commonwealth Games would be a big help in this regard.

“I think Delhi has a good chance of getting the Olympics. It has staged major sporting events in the past and there would be a lot of coherence in their claim. A successful Commonwealth Games would definitely be helpful,” Mr Coe said at a media interaction which also saw a large number of children assemble to receive valuable tips from the athletics legend.
