LONDON (GBR): Minister for Sport and the Olympics Hugh Robertson is confident London's bid to host the 2017 World Athletics Championships will not be damaged by Britain's three previous embarrassing failures to secure the event. "I don't think the IAAF will approach this in terms of the baggage from previous bids," Robertson told insidethegames. London will face opposition from three cities to host the 2017 competition. Doha, Budapest and Barcelona or Seville from Spain have put themselves forward to host the event. Writes Insidethegames.
