2020 Olympics candidate cities to present their bids at IOC

- +

The three candidates to host the 2020 Olympics will take a huge step on the road to who will be designated the winner in Buenos Aires on September 7 when they present their candidature files to the International Olympic Committee on Monday in Lausanne. 

Mark Adams (L), IOC Communications Director, and Gilbert Felli, Executive Director for the Olympic Games, announce candidates to host the 2020 Olymic Games, on May 23, 2012, in Quebec City, Canada. Tokyo, Madrid and Istanbul were selected as the finalists, setting up a 17-month global bidding campaign culminating with the IOC decision in September 2013 in Buenos Aires.

Istanbul, Madrid and Tokyo will all be sending high profile delegations to hand over their dossiers which have been painstakingly put together and will be hoping the details meet with the approval of the majority of the 100 plus IOC members when they vote in eight months' time.
