Tokyo Wins!

Congratulations to Tokyo for winning the bid to host the 2020 Olympiad.  There were three interesting choices this year with Madrid and Istanbul being the runners up.

The Olympic committee could have made a bold statement by choosing the first country with a majority Muslim population to hold the games but instead they decided this year to be safe.

Istanbul certainly would have made an interesting and exciting choice, perhaps the voters were showing a bit concern because Turkey is on the cusp of the tinder box that is the Middle East.

Madrid would have been scenic and beautiful choice but Spain is broke.  On the other hand bringing the Olympics to Spain would have been a long term boost to the moribund Spanish economy.

In the end everyone know the Japanese will get the games up and running and ready ahead of time, under budget and make it the most efficient games since......forever.

Well done you! Tokyo Olympic Committee.
