2016 Olympic Games

Tokyo is one of the candidate cities to host the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, besides Chicago, Madrid and Rio de Janeiro.  Tokyo previously hosted the Olympic Games in 1964, becoming the first city outside Europe and the USA to host the event. The olympic committee will reach a final decision on October 2, 2009.  

  Therefore, Tokyo is preparing the olympic infrastructure. The sporting avenues are located in two main zones, the Heritage Zone and the Tokyo Bay Zone. The Heritage Zone consists of existing venues, many of which were already used during the 1964 olympic games.  The Tokyo Bay Zone consists of venues on the man made islands of Tokyo Bay, many of which are to be newly constructed.”

I really wish Tokyo to host the 2016 olympic games, as they are very well prepared to organize it in a modern high tech way comparing with the other candidate cities, no offense!

      I’ve watched some scenes on TV on how Japan is preparing to host this event, and the preperations were really BIG and IMPRESSIVE! that’s when Nawal Almutawakel, the moroccan former hurdler and the member of the International Olympic Committe visited Tokyo.
