And so Tokyo's winning bid was a much needed psychological boost for Japan, and hopefully this will motivate the country to get things back on track.However, we have to wonder about the motivations of Chinese state media because Xinhua News Agency wrongly reported that Istanbul won the Olympic bid, while state television ran a headline during a live broadcast saying "Tokyo eliminated".
The mistake happened when Xinhua mistook a vote by the International Olympic Committee on whether either Istanbul or Madrid should advance to the next round as the final vote in which Istanbul won.
