Doping scandal with Russia has weakened the chances of the USA to the Olympics-2024


The application in the USA for the Olympics in 2024 may be rejected due to the emerging anti-American sentiment within the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The dissatisfaction of some members of the IOC related to the “notable role” of the US in the doping scandal with the Russian athletes. About it reports Reuters with reference to sources in the IOC.

“Of course, the application of Los Angeles will face some consequences from this,” — said a member of the IOC.

Bid to host the summer Olympics in 2024 in addition to Los Angeles (USA) also filed a Paris (France), Rome (Italy) and Budapest (Hungary). The IOC will decide on the venue of the Games in September 2017.
