UNITED NATIONS, August 23 (Itar-Tass) -- Organization of new large-scale international sports competitions in Russia, including the Summer Olympic Games, will be possible after the country hosts the FIFA World Cup championship in 2018, says the International Olympic Committee Jacques Rogge.
He indicated that the Russian authorities are busy organizing the football championship in 2018 at present, and the country will obviously be able to hold other major competitions after that.
The period for accepting bids for hosting the 34th Summer Olympic Games has not begun yet, he said.
In 2016, Rio de Janeiro will host the 31st Summer Olympiad, and the 23rd Winter Games will be held in Pyeongchang.
Istanbul, Madrid and Tokyo are competition for the right to organize the Summer Olympics in 2020, and the acceptance of bids for the 34th Summer Games will begin in 2015.
