PHOENIX, Arizona, January 18. RECENTLY the International Olympic Committee released the names of the three cities that will vie for the privilege to host the 2020 Olympics, and in our last poll we wanted to know which of them you thought would be the best host. Tokyo, which ran the Olympics in 1964, topped the voting with 48.31 percent. Madrid, Spain, placed second with 35.59 percent, and Istanbul, Turkey, was third with 16.10 percent. The IOC will name the city that hosts the 2020 Olympics in September.
We're staying with the same theme for this new poll question. USA Swimming released the cities that are finalists for hosting the 2016 Olympic Swimming Trials, and after the news, many people posted their thoughts on swimmingworld.com, on Facebook and Twitter, and we want you to get behind the city you think would be the best host in our new poll of the week. The choices are Greensboro, North Carolina, Indianapolis, Indiana, Jacksonville, Florida, Omaha, Nebraska, St. Louis, Missouri and San Antonio, Texas. Just go to our home page at swimmingworld.com to place your vote by next Friday. The name of the city that will host the meet will be announced in April, but we'll let you know which one got the most votes in our poll of the week show next Friday.
