2020 Olympics bids received from six cities

The United States isn’t submitting a bid for the 2020 Olympics but six other cities are: Rome; Madrid; Tokyo; Istanbul; Doha, Qatar; and Baku, Azerbaijan.

Rome hosted the 1960 Olympics, and Tokyo hosted the Games four years later. Tokyo, which finished third in the vote for the 2016 Games, wants this bid to be symbolic of Japan’s recovery from the March 11 tsunami that wreaked havoc on the country.

This is the third consecutive bid for Madrid, and in awarding the 2018 Winter Olympics to Pyeonchang, South Korea, the IOC commended the city’s persistence in bidding again after two failed attempts.
