Olympics 2020: Tokyo wins race to host Games

Tokyo has been chosen to host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games ahead of Istanbul and Madrid.

 

The Japanese capital won a majority of second-round votes from International Olympic Committee (IOC) members in Buenos Aires to beat Istanbul.

Madrid had earlier been eliminated in a first round of voting.

The announcement was met with jubilant scenes in Japan, as Tokyo prepares to host the event for the first time since 1964.

If people think the Sochi games will have problems because of certain laws, then it's a good thing Istanbul didn't win, it can and would be far worse

 

Plus there would not be the epic parties that we hear about in the Athlete's dorms
