Olympic Delegates Mull Radiation, Riots in Vote on 2020 Games

Tokyo, Madrid and Istanbul all have to overcome significant hurdles as the cities try to win votes to host the 2020 Olympics, which may bring a boost of more than $500 million to local economies.

The finalists will make presentations to the International Olympic Committee tomorrow in Buenos Aires before about 100 IOC members decide on the host. Each city had to face questions this week about its preparations and ability to hold the summer games, which winning bidders often use to improve transport and other infrastructure.
