Italian National Olympic Committee President Confirms End Of Rome 2024 Bid

Italian National Olympic Committee President Confirms End Of Rome 2024 Bid

Last week, Giovanni Malago, president of the Italian National Olympic Committee, Comitato Olimpico Nazionale Italiano (CONI), announced the official withdrawal of Rome as a bid city for the 2024 Olympic Games.

Malago explained in a press conference that he wrote a letter to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) stating that they would “interrupt the candidacy.”

The withdrawal comes on the recommendation of Virginia Raggi, mayor of Rome, that was coupled with a vote of approval from Rome’s city council. Raggi took the stance that it would be “irresponsible” for a city that has struggled with years of corruption and poor public services to take on the cost of an Olympic bid and penned her thoughts in a letter to the IOC last month.

Although Raggi took the time to write to the IOC, the rules state that only the Olympic committee of a country can withdraw the candidacy. Malago reaffirmed this, stating, “anybody can write to the IOC, but the only letter that counts is the one from the president of the Olympic committee.”
