On Wednesday, July 3, 2013, His Royal Highness Prince Felipe of Asturias accompanied by the mayor of Madrid, Ms. Ana Botella, and the president of the Comité Olímpico Español, Mr. Alejandro Blanco, arrived at the International Olympic Committee headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland to participate in the 2020 summer Olympic Games candidate cities briefings/bid presentations.
The city of Madrid is competing against Tokyo and Istanbul to host the upcoming 2020 summer Olympics. The International Olympic Committee will announce the winner — err host city — on September 7, 2013. Hopefully, it will be Tokyo. 🙂
