ROME -- Irresponsible, unsustainable and unaffordable.Refusing to put up with more debt in a city besieged by corruption and poor public services, Mayor Virginia Raggi rejected Romes bid for the 2024 Olympics on Wednesday, effectively dooming the capitals candidacy for the second time in four years.This city is unlivable, Raggi said in a news conference at city hall atop ancient Capitoline Hill. We need to focus on that.We have a much more ambitious project for Rome than the one for the 2024 Games, Raggi added. We want to upgrade the services, give back to citizens a city that is as worthy as any other European capital.If approved by Romes city assembly, Raggis motion to withdraw the bid would leave only Los Angeles, Paris and Budapest, Hungary, in the running for the 2024 Games. The International Olympic Committee will decide on the host city in September 2017.Raggis rejection comes after then-Premier Mario Monti stopped Romes plans to bid for the 2020 Olympics because of financial concerns.Weve lost all credibility, if we pull out, Italian Olympic Committee president Giovanni Malago said, ruling out an eventual bid for the 2028 Games, even from another Italian city. Because theyll think people in Italy are not serious.Raggi said it would be financially irresponsible to pursue the bid any further given the city is barely able to get its trash picked up. She highlighted the debts that previous Olympic host cities have incurred and the unfinished infrastructure already blighting Rome from previous sporting bids as reasons to justify the withdrawal.In light of the data we have, these Olympics are not sustainable. They will bring only debt, she said. We dont want sports to become another pretext for more cement foundations in the city. We wont allow it.Raggi drew up a motion to withdraw the bid Wednesday and put it before the city assembly, which has the final say. There was no immediate word if and when the council would take it up.Malago said the committee would continue working on the bid in the absence of a formal vote, noting the next dossier must be submitted to the IOC on Oct. 7.If theres no formal act, we can continue, he said. They cant just declare it in a news conference.Indeed, rival cities werent ready to count Rome out altogether.There is no confirmation that Rome has departed from the 2024 race and as such it is not appropriate for us to offer any comment except to wish our Italian colleagues well during this period of difficult time, the Budapest Olympic committee said.Raggi, a 38-year-old lawyer who is Romes first female mayor, was elected in June representing the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement.The Rome bid was approved by the city assembly last year with 38 votes in favor and only six against -- meaning Raggi will have to put the issue up for another vote to officially end the candidacy.The IOC requires bidders to have support from the government and city.Previous Mayor Ignazio Marino, who was forced out over an expense account scandal, had supported the bid. And Premier Matteo Renzi has been a big fan of the candidacy since he helped launch it in 2014. He has said the bid would be doomed if Romes mayor doesnt support it.A budget of 24 million euros ($27 million) has already been allotted -- much of it spent -- to the bid committee, even though candidacy head Luca Cordero di Montezemolo has no salary.Raggis rejection was another stinging blow for the IOCs Olympic Agenda 2020 program, which was designed to make bidding for and hosting the games more flexible and more affordable.Rome was able to bid only after the IOC changed its rules with Agenda 2020 and reduced the costs of putting together a candidacy, Malago said.The bid had been slated to be centered around Romes historic monuments: a cycling sprint alongside the Roman Forum, beach volleyball at the Circus Maximus and the marathon passing through St. Peters Square and finishing under the Arch of Constantine. Plus, a nightly parade of athletes at the Colosseum.Relying on many venues that were used for the 1960 Olympics in Rome, the candidacy proposed using existing structures for 70 percent of the required sites. The budget had been projected at 5.3 billion euros ($6 billion) -- 2.1 billion euros for the construction of permanent venues and the balance for temporary venues.The withdrawal is another clear signal that the IOC still has a lot of work to do to convince cities that hosting the games is a boon and not a burden.Voters in Hamburg rejected the German citys 2024 bid in a referendum. Boston also dropped out last year amid a lack of public and political support and was replaced by Los Angeles.Its very upsetting, Rome bid vice president Luca Pancalli said. Its like we started a race and someone gets out of the pool in the middle of the race and says were not racing any longer.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: www.twitter.com/asdampf Dede Westbrook Jersey . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes.

YOKOHAMA, Japan -- FIFA President Gianni Infantino has defended the use of video replays despite a shaky debut for the new system at the Club World Cup.The replay system allows referees to halt play to review footage of game-changing decisions, but its introduction has had a mixed reaction from players and coaches at the tournament, including Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.The results are extremely positive, Infantino said. Of course there are learnings, of course there are a few topics that we have to look into and discuss in more detail, but the result is extremely positive. Why? Because the referee has been able to take the right decision and justice and transparency have been brought to the game.Following Thursdays match between Real Madrid and Club America, several players were skeptical about the system.The system was used for the first time on Wednesday when Kashima Antlers were awarded a penalty kick that led to the first goal in a 3-0 win over Atletico Nacional.Kashima midfielder Gaku Shibasaki sent in a free kick in the 31st minute, and teammate Daigo Nishi was then fouled inside the box by Atletico Nacional forward Orlando Berrio.After receiving information about a missed incident from video assistant referee Danny Makkelie, Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai drew an imaginary square with his hands to indicate that he would conduct a review of the footage via a monitor on the sidelines. Kassai then pointed to the penalty spot, ruling from the replay that Nishi was tripped inside the penalty area by Berrio.Shoma Doi took the penalty and scored Kashimas first goal but there was some confusion as Nishi appeared to be offside.In the first game with Kashima, the referee didnt see the situation and the videoo assistant referee saw a clear tackle so he interfered, said Marco van Basten, the former Dutch international who is FIFAs chief officer of technical development.dddddddddddd The referee watched the television and said `OK, you are right and I give a penalty. So in the end it took a few seconds too much but it was the right decision.In Thursdays semifinal, Ronaldo scored an injury-time goal to help Madrid beat Club America 2-0 and earn a spot in the final.But after Ronaldo scored, referee Enrique Caceres appeared to ask for confirmation from his video assistant referee that there was no offside. The Paraguayan official then decided that the goal stood without appearing to view a video himself.The television doesnt work, huh? Ronaldo was overheard saying with a laugh as he left the field.FIFA officials attributed the confusion on the Ronaldo goal to a problem of communication between the officials.When Ronaldo scored the second goal it was a clear situation and there was no offside, Van Basten said. So in the end it was good and the right decision was made. Only the communication between the video assistant referee and the referee was not optimum.FIFA says the aim is to achieve `minimum interference, maximum benefit, with the technology only being used for defined match-changing situations and any serious missed incidents. In these cases, the question a VAR will consider is not `was the decision correct? but `was the decision clearly wrong?Referees still retain the authority to make the final judgment. Managers and players will not be allowed to appeal to referees to review an incident.
