2020 Olympics Bidding Result


 

Tokyo have been chosen to host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic games, 49 years after they last hosted the games! After Madrid, Istanbul and Tokyo all went through to the final vote, Tokyo went straight through. Istanbul and Madrid were tied so they was another vote. Istanbul won that one 49 – 45.

In the Final Vote, Tokyo won a landslide victory, 60 – 36! In Tokyo’s final presentation, they quoted themselves the ‘Safe Option’! Safe as it may seem, there were still concerns over the nearby Nuclear Plant, and Japan’s natural disasters, such as the Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011. But, although Istanbul were bargaining to be the first Muslim country to host a big sport event, it wasn’t to be, as Qatar will be hosting the 2022 World Cup.
