Madrid Loses 2016 Olympics:

Madrid loses the 2016 Olympics. Juan Antonio Samaranch, a former International Olympics Committee president, pleaded for the award to go to Madrid and cited his advanced age, 89, and being "very near the end on my time," as good reasons for Rio to be bypassed and his home country, Spain, and the city of Madrid be awarded the 2016 Olympics. No pressure there, huh?
