Hiroshima & Nagasaki, joint bid to compete for 2020 Summer Olympic.


Well after Tokyo recently lost 2016 Summer Olympics bid to Rio De Janeiro, and with Chicago not even making it into the second round. I hear internet news that Hiroshima & Nagasaki will be doing a joint bid for 2020 Olympics. So hopefully their country will make it to win the bid. Historically these two cities were impacted by the atomic bomb, and their desire for the Olympics for promoting peace, perhaps their message will reach the Olympics committee.

The year 2020 has a special significance for the mayors, who serve as president and vice president of Mayors for Peace, a global group of mayors from about 3,000 cities that advocate the abolition of nuclear weapons. In April last year, the group adopted the Hiroshima-Nagasaki Protocol, which calls for the elimination of nuclear weapons by 2020.
