    Rome Aspires to Become Host of 2024 Olympic Games

    December 16, 2014

    Rome: The city of Rome (Italy) will be one of the candidates to organize the 2024 Olympic Games, as announced by Italian Prime Minister Mateo Renzi Monday.

    Renzi said this will be a project without great infrastructures.  He said the government is ready to carry out this project, and feels the need to help the national teams and sports organizations.

    The statements of the Italian Prime Minister were at the Hall of Honor of the National Olympic Committee, in the delivery of the Golden Necklace to Sports Merit.

    Renzi also added the Italian government does not think the work must take too much investment, but the work of great athletes and people in general.

    The capital of Italy thus becomes the first city aspiring to host the 2024 Games, which will come after the ones in Tokyo, Japan, in 2020, the Prensa Latina News Agency reported.

    Renzi talked about "the courage and the energy" of the athletes of Italy, and stated that Italy has great conditions to become one of the best.

    After announcing the Italian candidature will be presented in September and the host will be chosen in 2017, Renzi showed himself convinced that Italy will be a great host for the 2024 Games.

    Italy had planned to present its candidature but the project went down, when then Prime Minister Mario Monti rejected the idea of supporting the project with financial resources.(KH)
