The first Youth Olympic Games is not even here yet and guess what, people have been dying to bid for the 2nd Games already!
HOT off IOC press:
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) today announced that six National Olympic Committees (NOCs) have submitted applications to host the 2nd Summer Youth Olympic Games in 2014. They are, in alphabetical order: China, Indonesia, Mexico, Morocco, Poland and Turkey.
A number of NOCs requested additional time to designate the city they wish to put forward as Candidate City.
The IOC has extended the deadline for these NOCs to submit the name of their cities to 1 April 2009. As of today, Jakarta 2014 (Indonesia), Nanjing 2014 (China) and Poznan 2014 (Poland) have already been confirmed.
For one, the names sound exciting and unique! Poznan…wow… reminds me of the James Bond ad where the guy says, “Mr Poznan?” If anyone knows what I’m talking about…yay!
If not, here’s a link for you to find out more about the bid.
Oh I found the video. Enjoy Mr Poznan/Bosnan!
