Olympics committee reviews New York

The International Olympics Committee released its report today on the five candidate cities for the 2012 summer Games, including New York. The section on the city veered from the bold – “New York envisages a major construction programme for the Olympic Games” – to the understated – “The city has a good record of hosting major events.” The report also noted the city’s commitment to $276.6 million in capital investments for new sports facilities. A decision on which city will host is not expected until July.more [olympic.org]
