BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- Tokyo has been awarded the 2020 Olympics, capitalizing on its reputation as a "safe pair of hands" and defying concerns about the Fukushima nuclear crisis.

Tokyo defeated Istanbul in the final round of secret voting Saturday by the International Olympic Committee. Madrid was eliminated earlier after an initial tie with Istanbul.

Thank God no city in this country got the event. It would have been grossly mismanaged and would have ended up costing the taxpayers a fortune!!!
