Madrid Hasn't Decided On 2020 Bid

ESPN reports Madrid won’t rush into a decision about bidding for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games. Spanish Olympic Committee President Alejandro Blanco did not rule out a repeat run, but called for patience Wednesday.

Blanco said, “let’s reflect and think about it first…if we have to go for it in ’20 we’ll go for it in ’20. If we have to go for it in ’24, we’ll go for it in ’24. We don’t want the Olympic flame to burn out, but we have to be conscious of when it should be our moment”.

Blanco believes an African contender could also emerge for 2020. Africa is now the only continent not to have been awarded the Olympics.
