Rogge Pleads For Fair Play

Jacques Rogge, President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), yesterday pleaded with the 5 cities competing for the 2012 Olympic Games to run a clean campaign. Quote:

"I made a plea for a strict respect of the rules. We have received far too many complaints about small issues that have no importance."

The cities made presentations to the general assembly of the European Olympic Committee, yesterday evening.

Paris is favourite, the choice will be made next July.
