Forget London: Kenya and others bid for 2024 Olympics


Nairobi, Kenya has placed a bid with the International Olympic Committee to host the 2024 games. If they are chosen, Nairobi will be the first-ever African city to host the games, according to WebProNews. Along with its Olympic bid, the African nation also appealed to investors to “fund improvements to facilities that have helped to nurture some of the world’s greatest distance runners,” Reuters reported.

Isaiah Kiplagat, chairman of Kenya’s athletics federation, noted that the town of Iten in the Rift Valley had become like “a magic place” for athletes seeking the winning formula. GlobalPost originally reported on the tiny town at the start of the London Olympic games, noting its capacity to produce winners. source: Golbal post blog.
