Future hosts aim for Olympic boost

Hosting an Olympics is a costly gamble, but the opportunity to showcase a city is too much too resist.

    It's estimated that hosting the London Games will cost the British taxpayer around 14 billion dollars.

    Justifying that sort of a spend on a sporting event is one of the most difficult tricks for any host to pull off. Organisers from venue cities for the next two Olympics - Sochi and Rio - are in London attempting to do just that.
