  • In the Moment: London Wins 2012 Bid


    07/08/20

    (ATR) The race for the 2012 Summer Games came down to the wire at the IOC Session in Singapore the first week of July 2005.

    The world’s leading cities took part in this legendary contest. New York, London, Paris, Madrid and Moscow made up a race that is likely not to be seen again under the new way the IOC picks a host city.

    The latest edition of In the Moment, produced from the audio archives of Around the Rings, takes us back to the voting that eventually awarded London the bid.
