Russia Plans to Hold Summer Olympics after 2020

Russia wants to file an application for holding the Summer Olympic Games after 2020, Aleksandr Zhukov, the country’s Olympic Committee president, says.

      "Besides the Olympics in 2014, our country now has some other big events on the agenda, including the FIFA World Cup. After we stage them all – in the 2020s – we’ll bid for the Summer Games,” the OC president said answering the questions from pupils during an open Olympic lesson in Moscow.

      In coming years, Russia will host a number of top competitions in different kinds of sports. The major of them is the Winter Olympics 2014 at the Black Sea resort city of Sochi - the first ever Winter Olympics for Russia. Besides, Kazan will host the Summer Universiade in 2013 - the same year for Moscow to hold the Athletic World Championships. The hockey Worlds will come to Russia in 2016, with 11 cities to provide venues for the FIFA World Cup in 2018.
