Madrid, Tokyo, Istanbul Make Last For 2020 Games

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - The final day of campaigning by the three cities bidding for the 2020 Olympics began with Madrid saying its proposal based on economic austerity can become the new model for future games.

Madrid officials spoke at a news conference Friday in Buenos Aires leading to Saturday's vote by IOC members. Tokyo and Istanbul are to make their cases later in the day.

Madrid Mayor Ana Botella said the Spanish bid offers a "responsible budget" appropriate for "current times."

Bid leader Alejandro Blanco said "we are trying to show that our candidacy is adjusting to what the Olympic movement wants."
