A report has recently revealed that Mitt Romney, who became the winner of the Florida primary on Friday, has been claiming himself to be the reason for the success of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City.
The 2002 Winter Olympic Games had been facing a bribery scandal and Romney affirms that it was him who had saved the Olympics, which the other way round could not have succeeded. It is being said by the Republican that he only has caused the Olympics to resume.
It has been claimed by him on a celebration that was organized in the honour of the 10-year anniversary of the games, that he has put his time to run the Olympics back in the limelight. It is thus, that he has been insisting that it is a major reason why he should be elected as president. However, Romney has been saying so but, questions have been arising whether or not he deserves the credit.
The report has revealed that people who were with him on the games are in his favour. They are also of the opinion that he has aided a lot, thereby deserves the credit. Also, Lane Beattie, who is a former president of the Utah state Senate and the state's liaison with the committee, has added that he has definitely helped American athletes to be more successful.
Further, he added, "He demanded excellence and he brought in incredible people. ... It wasn't all Mitt. What he did was bring in the best and the brightest he could find and put them in the right place". Therefore, it is being said that he is a deserving man. The results are being awaited though.
