2016 Olympic bidders await IOC evaluation report

Posted:

LONDON (KWWL) - Heading into the final month of the race, the four cities vying for the 2016 Summer Games, Chicago, Madrid, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo, are awaiting a key International Olympic Committee report assessing their technical bids.

The IOC will release its evaluation commission report on Wednesday, exactly a month before the vote in Copenhagen on Oct. 2.

The report won't grade or rank the candidates. It will focus on technical criteria such as venues, budgets, transportation plans, accommodation, security and government and public support.

With IOC members still barred from visiting bid cities in the wake of the Salt Lake City scandal, the report is intended to offer guidance to the 100-plus delegates when they cast their secret ballots next month.
