    PARIS, France: International Olympic Committee (IOC) presidential candidate Richard Carrion has said that in the future no city should be allowed to host the Olympic Games if they discriminate against people in any way. The 60-year-old Puerto Rican banker—who is a leading candidate to replace Jacques Rogge when he steps down as IOC president on September 10 – sent a statement to Agence France-Presse in response to the concerns expressed about legislation signed into law in June by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The new law punishes the dissemination of information about homosexuality to minors but which activists say can be used for a broad crackdown against gays.
