Tokyo wins bid to host 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games


Tokyo is celebrating. Still reeling after
last night’s news that the city won the bid to host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games residents gather outside the Tokyo metropolitan
government building to share their delight. The International Olympic Committee voted
for the Japanese capital, which saw off bids from Istanbul and Madrid, to succeed London
and Rio in hosting the sporting world’s most prized events. “I very much appreciate the
strong support that the IOC has given to to Japan. I sincerely promise that Japan will
keep its word and make sure the 2020 Olympic Games will be a success.” Tokyo won by a landslide
vote, despite concerns about contaminated water leaking from the crippled Fuck-asheema-
nuclear plant where radiation levels have reached a new high.
