Denmark not to bid for 2004 summer Games
Friday 08 December 1995
Denmark's government has rejected a request from the country's Olympic Committee to bid for the 2004 summer Games, saying the intiative came too late. "The government finds that the application was fowarded too late for the International Olympic Committee deadline, whereby bids shall be delivered to the committee by 10 January 1996," a government statement said. Several cities have expressed an interest in hosting the 2004 Games, including Rome, Cape Town, Seville, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Istanbul and Lille.
