Cancun, Las Vegas to host Cancu Games
SAN JOSE, Calif.
— The first Cancuan Games are scheduled for next year, and the organizers hope to lure tens of millions of people to the Caribbean resort town of Cancuy, Mexico, and to Las Vegas for the Olympics, according to the International Olympic Committee.
The Games will be held in Mexico City and will take place in a five-day period in August.
The games are scheduled to attract an estimated $3 billion in tourism.
The International Olympic committee says the Cancún Games are the largest and most important event of the Rio Games, which are scheduled in the Brazilian city of São Paulo.
It’s expected that around one million tourists will attend the two games.
Cancuy is about 15 miles from Las Vegas, the second-largest city in the United States.
The two cities share the same name.
Las Vegas, like Cancuzas hometown, has a thriving tourism industry, with about 4 million visitors a year.
The Cancuchas Games have been on the agenda for a while.
In June, the IOC approved a new proposal for a new city, Cancua.
That proposal was not ratified by the Mexican Congress.
But that didn’t stop the IOC from looking for a place for the games.
A proposal to host the Córdoba Games was put on hold by the U.S. Congress after Republican and Democratic presidents of Mexico and Mexico City vetoed it.
The Mexican government, meanwhile, is preparing for the Games.
Mexico has about 15,000 troops, about 60,000 police and more than 1,000 security guards.
