Jacques Rogge says South Africa could host 'very good' Olympics - More Sports - SI.com

DURBAN, South Africa (AP) -- IOC President Jacques Rogge says South Africa is capable of organizing a "very good" Olympics and that a bid from the country could be helped by Africa's unique position as the only continent that has yet to host the games.

Rogge says South Africa has proved many times it can stage big events, "but we would only award the games on the quality of the bid, not on the location."

However, he adds if two bids were equally matched, the region which hasn't hosted the Olympics "would be favored."

After holding a successful soccer World Cup this year, South Africa has said it will bid to host Africa's first Olympics in 2020.

The east coast city of Durban, where Rogge was attending an IOC conference, is expected to be the country's candidate.
