    0

    LONDON: Durban laid the ground on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) for a potential Olympic Games bid by announcing its intention to stage the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Neither of the multi-sport events has ever been held in South Africa but Durban indicated it was looking to break the mould by staging the 22nd Commonwealth Games in eight years’ time. Monday also saw the Canadian city of Edmonton, host to the 1978 Commonwealth Games and the 2001 outdoor athletics world championships, declare its 2022 interest. Confirmed bids are due to be lodged in March 2015, with formal consideration by members of the Commonwealth Games Federation taking place at their general assembly in Auckland in September 2015.
