Mexico Withdraws From Bid To Host 2036 Olympics

Mexico has decided to step back from its bid to host the 2036 Olympics, more than 50 years after hosting the Summer Games for the first time, as confirmed by a senior official.
Maria Jose Alcala, the head of the Mexican Olympic Committee, stated on Tuesday, “We had a talk with the International Olympic Committee, and we saw that the competition is very tough.”
She mentioned that Mexico is now exploring the possibility of bidding to host the Youth Olympic Games.
In October 2022, Alcala and then-Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard had announced Mexico’s aspiration to host the 2036 Olympics, marking the second time the Latin American nation would host the Summer Games.
The first occasion was the 1968 Olympics held in Mexico City at an altitude of 2,240 meters (7,350 feet) above sea level.
Other countries, including India, Indonesia, Poland, and Turkey, are also expressing their ambitions to host the 2036 Olympics.
