The IOC scored New York City’s bid at 7.5 out of 10 which is where I would have scored it too based upon the other countries that were also bidding. If the United States wants to hold another Olympics we need to focus on safety because the United States is where everyone in the world see you can create dreams which mean we must be the safest and during the Summer Olympic in 1996 in Atlanta there was a bombing which is why the safety and security is a key and needs to be more of a focus for New York City.
