ROME---IOC President Thomas Bach offered his
encouragement yesterday to a possible Rome bid
for the 2024 Olympics, saying the Italian capital
would be a "very strong contender."
Rome, which hosted the 1960 Games, pulled out
of the bidding for the 2020 Olympics when the Italian
government refused to provide financial backing. No
decision has yet been made on whether to bid for
"It s not a secret, a Rome bid for the 2024 Games
would be very strong," Bach told a Rome conference
celebrating the centenary of the Italian Olympic
Committee. "Italy is a country with a great passion
for sport and great athletes and is efficient in hos-
pitality and organisation.
"It would be a very strong bid which would have
the sympathy of a lot of people, not only in the
Olympic family but inside the whole movement."
A Rome bid could face competition from Paris;
Doha, Qatar; Istanbul, Turkey, and cities from the
United States, Germany and South Africa.
Bids will be submitted to the IOC next year, and
the host city will be selected in 2017.
Bach also said the International Olympic Committee
is looking at shaking up the bid procedure in the
"We need to change philosophy," he said. "In the
past we needed to build many stadiums with huge
capacity and with so many technical procedures to
"At the time maybe it was right but it doesn t
respond to today s demands. We have to think about
how the games could enter into the social fabric of
the host country. We have to be more flexible, starting
with the program, and understand how to best manage
Changes to the bid process are among the issues
being considered as part of Bach s "Agenda 2020,"
his blueprint for the future of the Olympic movement.
Recommendations will be put to a vote at a special
IOC meeting in Monaco in December.
Bach also sought to assuage concerns over Rio de
Janeiro s delayed preparations for the 2016 Olympics,
saying "great progress" has been made recently. (AP)

COL DU BEAL---British rider Chris
Froome showed he is in dominant form
ahead of the Tour de France, beating main
rival Alberto Contador to win the second
stage of the Criterium du Dauphine yes-
Froome accelerated with 800 metres
remaining and managed to hold off two-
time Tour de France champion Contador
on the 158.5-kilometre leg from Tarare to
Col du Beal.
Wilco Kelderman was third, four seconds
behind the lead duo.
"I gave everything today," Froome said.
"In such a climb, it became a great battle
with Alberto Contador. We rode flat out. It
was really tough between the two of us. I ve
tried to attack him a couple of times but
he was very strong."
It was Froome s second successive victory
in the eight-stage race, following his win
in the opening time trial. He has a 12-second
advantage over Contador and is 21 seconds
ahead of Kelderman.
Froome won the Dauphine last year and
went on to capture the Tour de France title
a few weeks later.
Froome s Sky team set the pace at the
head of the peloton for most of the route
over the five categorised climbs and it caught
the break up the final ascent on the Col du
Beal, which is HC or "Hors Categorie,"
meaning it s considered too hard to classi-
fy.Froome attacked twice with 5 kilometres
remaining, splitting the bunch, with a six-
man lead group making its way to the finish.
The 29-year-old then made another move
inside the final kilometre and this time only
Contador could stay with him.
Another Tour de France contender, Vin-
cenzo Nibali, struggled in the final kilometres
and finished sixth, 27 seconds behind
Froome. Today s third stage is a 194-kilo-
metre leg from Ambert to La Teil. (AP)

More than four years after
saying he had nothing to be
sorry for, USA Swimming chief
Chuck Wielgus apologised to
victims of sexual abuse for the
Wielgus has resisted repeated
calls to step down as executive
director and pointed to enhanced
steps to protect athletes as proof
that he was serious about erad-
icating sexual predators from
But he was recently forced to
withdraw from the International
Swimming Hall of Fame induc-
tion class and now acknowledges
that he should have done more.
Wielgus started a blog post
on the organisation s Web site
with two words: "I m sorry."
The apology referenced a
much-criticised 2010 television
interview in which a defiant
Wielgus said he had done noth-
ing wrong in the handling of
dozens of sexual abuse cases
under his leadership.
"These are powerful words
some people have wanted to
hear from me for a long time,"
he said in the blog. "And so
today, four long years later, I can
truthfully say how sorry I am
to the victims of sexual abuse."
While Wielgus stands by the
organisation s Safe Sport Pro-
gramme, which was instituted
after the sexual abuse cases came
to light, he has continued to face
criticism from those who say he
should step down if the USA
Swimming is going to make real
