Mexico is a beautiful country but certainly not without it's problems. While I was browsing through the Olympics host city list , I found out that Mexico City hosted the 1968 olympics. That came as a surprise to me considering that there Mexico is having many problems such as poverty even now and over 40 years ago that should should have been higher. Around that time IOC only gave the hosting rights to Developed countries and Mexico wasn't in a good state at that time. How was it then given the rights to host ? Were those olympics a success ? I couldn't find a lot of information on the internet as well. I mean even South Korea hosted the Olympics 20 years after Mexico even though It was and is Miles ahead of Mexico.if Mexico could be given hosting rights at that time what stops the IOC from encouraging African countries to host the olympics ?
