KUALA LUMPUR---A day after the high-profile vote
which awarded Beijing the 2022 Winter Games,
International Olympic Committee members dealt
yesterday with issues affecting the next two Summer
Games---severe water pollution in Rio de Janeiro
and the fuss over Tokyo s choice of emblem.
Earlier this month, the Japanese government threw
out the design plans for the main stadium for the
2020 Tokyo Games amid public criticism of the 252
billion yen ($2 billion) price tag, which was nearly
double the original estimate and would have made
it the most expensive sports stadium ever.
Tokyo organising committee head Yoshio Mori
later apologised, a gesture IOC president Thomas
Bach said yesterday wasn t really necessary.
But Tokyo officials now find themselves involved
in another controversy over an emblem they
unveiled---it s based on a "T," standing for Tokyo,
team and tomorrow.
But the 2013 logo for a theatre in Liege, Belgium,
has similar shapes in white against a black backdrop
and the designer of that logo says it will approach
the IOC and ask them to change it.
IOC vice president John Coates of Australia, who
heads the coordination commission for the Tokyo
Games, said the IOC did everything required ahead
of the emblem s unveiling.
"The IOC and Tokyo had checked all of the copy-
right registers," Coates said.
"We have looked at both designs and we don t
think we have a problem."
Mori said yesterday that the logo was developed
over six months and "we ve gone through the proper
In other Tokyo news, Coates said the number of
extra athletes as a result of new sports being added
to the program will be capped at 500. Eight sports
are on a short list for consideration, with a final deci-
sion to be made by the IOC in August 2016.
Tokyo organisers are expected to recommend base-
ball and softball, both popular in Japan. But the 500-
athlete quota---which Mori said he d heard only for
the first time yesterday---would likely only allow base-
ball and softball, and possibly one other sport to be
added, owing to the number of players on those team
On Rio s polluted water issues, Brazilian organising
committee chief Carlos Nuzman said he isn t planning
"I can confirm here the sailing competition will
not be moved to any other venue," he told the delegates
during an update on preparations for the 2016 Games.
This week, The Associated Press published findings
of a five-month study that looked specifically at
viruses present in water being used for rowing, sailing
and wind surfing, triathlon and open-water swimming
The tests concluded athletes risk exposure to viruses
that could make them too ill to compete.
Rio spokesman Mario Andrada promised the organ-
ising committee would do more in the rest of 2015
and early next year to clean up floating waste in Gua-
nabara Bay and other waterways.
"The water around the bay currently complies
with national and international standards," Andrada
told the IOC. (AP)
