Shot Across The Bows

Olympic President, Jacques Rogge, has fired a warning shot across the bows of the five cities bidding for the 2012 Olympic Games.

He issued a statement at the Berlin Intercontinental Hotel, where the final presentations for the 2012 Games are being made, saying:

"We do not want a kind of bidding war in the final few days. This would not be good for the Olympic movement,".


"But remember where we (IOC) come from and where we never want to go back. I want a fair system for candidate cities and I want a fair system for the IOC".
